Once you slacken the generator the belt should slip of the harmonic balancer quite easily. If the belt is slackened and you cant remove it from the crankshaft wheel /hub then the front engine mount may be collapsed or compressed which wil reduce the clearanace of the hub / balancer  to the mounting frame / crossmember . That in turn makes it difficult to remove the belt.  I have replaced numerous front engine mounts over the years on these vehicles and its due to age and oil exposure generally.  it may pay to check it.

you likely have a failed front motor mount, the rubber likely has started to come apart, causing the engine to sit slightly lower in the front, a new engine mount and perhaps two large washer as a shim, should restore changing or removing the fan belt as easy as it's supposed to be.
