I removed the serpentine belt and the two mounting bolts (top and bottom) from the alternator. While it will swivel forwards towards the rad, I am unable to pull it out, am I missing something?

Do you
have the same problem?

The bracket has a bush that contracts the distance between the alternator base when blt is tightened. Rock the alternator sideways to move the bush outwards to gain clearance. This would allow easier installation.
