EGR VALVE

2007 Chrysler Town and Country

Engine Mechanical problem
2007 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 40818 miles

I am trying to change the EGR Valve and I can not get to the bottom bolt on the valve. I am woundering if I have to take the Alternator off or not to finish this or is there another way to get to the bottome bolt?
