Aha, you have the Rallye. That's the completely stripped down model. In that light there may not be much weight reduction you can do.

Yes, pulling the alternator belt would give me the shivers, too. But I know my truck, for instance, is good for at least ten miles because that's how far it went after I tried to replace the alternator in the parts store parking lot, and couldn't, and drove home with the new alternator in the front seat.
