Looks like you have to loosen the tension on the serpentine belt first. Only one bolt is not easily accessed. If you don't loosen the belt, you have to hold the belt out the way (with tension on it) and try to get the bolt in and hold the housing up at the same time (good luck with that unless you have three hands), it can be done though. I am not much of a mechanic and it took me about 1.5 hours with the serpentine belt in place.
