More than likely the mount is bad and you will have to buy the bolt from the dealer or a fabricating shop that sells metric bolts, or go to a junk yard to get a replacement for same car. pull the nut off the other side and measure from the top of the bolt to the end of the threads then go buy one at the store using the nut as your size guide and thread pitch and get a grade 8 bolt to replace it with.

Yes you adjust the belt tensin by adjusting the alternator. the one with the 14mm head is the pivot and the one with the 12mm head is the lock down bolt.

Hi, i can tell you its a metric size of about 8-10mm, if you go to the local mechanic they will probably have one in their spare nuts and bolts box and probably give it to you for free otherwise go to your local hardware and park your car close by, take your tools, they usually will let you exchange until you get the right one, stick to high tensile bolts. For the length, stick a thin screwdriver or similar into the hole and see how long it is, take into account the thickness of the bracket , make sure you get the right thread and start it off with your finger first, if it wont screw in with your finger than it may be the wrong thread. The other option is find a wrecker that has your vehicle and get one off them!!!

1.Disconnect the battery by turning the positive terminal bolt in a counterclockwise direction with a 10mm socket wrench. Disconnect the terminal nut on the alternator by turning it counterclockwise with an open-ended wrench. Store the terminals away from the battery.
Disconnect the Intrigue's serpentine fan belt by pressing on the tension pulley arm firmly then working the belt out from underneath the idle pulley. Release the tension pulley arm so the belt will have enough slack to be removed from the alternator pulley wheel.
Remove the mount bolts by turning the nuts counterclockwise, holding the bolt head with a socket wrench. Slide the bolts out of the mount arms. Replace the alternator with a new unit by positioning it into the mount arms and sliding the bolts through the mount holes. Tighten all nuts securely.
Replace the drive belt by wrapping the belt around the alternator pulley wheel then pressing on the tension arm to slide the belt back underneath the idle pulley. Release the arm and the belt will tighten to an automatic adjustment.
Reconnect the alternator's wiring harness connection by placing the terminal over the connection bolt and securing the nut clockwise with a small wrench. Reconnect the battery by turning the terminal bolt clockwise with a 10 mm socket.
