Noob question

Is there an easy way to change the alternator belt on an S4 Spider or do I have to remove the serpantine belt too?

You have to remove the serpentine belt. It's pretty easy: loosen and swing down the PS pump.

My 94 Spider has a broken alternator belt. The shop manual says I should drain the coolant before removing the A/C serpentine belt so I can put on a new alternator belt. Is it necessary to drain the coolant before removing the belts? If so, why?

I’m not anywhere near the car, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t have to drain the coolant to change the alternator belt. You should just be able to loosen the PS pump and get the serp belt off the crank pulley and out of the way.
