89 cherokee!! HOW DO I get the alternator out????

I am having a problem finding the right bolt to lossen, or place to remove my belt. I can't figure out how to loosen the belt! This is a 4.0 1989 cherokee Larado.
My 93 cherokee has a small wheel next to the thermostate houseing(that lossens it), but this one I can't figure out. Also will I need to pull the radiator, or anything else to get to it. I know this is something simple, but I have not had much time to fuge with it.

Thanks for any helpful comments:

The power steering pump needs to be loosened. There is one 13mm pivot bolt at the top front, one 13mm nut under in the front (adjuster lock nut), two 13mm in back of the pump, and then loosen the adjuster bolt on the driverside also a 13mm. Its a little easier with the aux fan out. That will loosen the belt. Then the alt comes out from underneath with 10, 13, 14, 15mm bolts/nuts. You have to loosen the stamped steel bracket to make it easier to get out. I would disconnect the battery before you pull the alt just to be safe.

Ditto. Couldn't have said it better myself.
