That's the bad part, you have to remove the engine to get the alt. out, everything around it is too close to it.

Actually, you don't have to remove the engine, but it must be raised. Place a jack under the oil pan, preferably with a block of wood to protect the pan. Put slight pressure on pan. Remove the engine mount bolt on the passenger side of engine. Lift engine about an inch with jack. Remove alternator from underneath car. You may also have to remove the plastic splash guard under the car on some applications

if it is anything like my 2002 Kia Optima V6. I had to remove the axle shaft remove the upper motor mount and then put a jack under the engine and raise it about an inch. this gave me enough room to remove the alternater.
