Yeah, if you take those studs out for the alternator it is a big help, I recall that there are 3 of them. Once those are out of the way, you can squeak the alt out by the side of the exhaust manifold if you flatten down the heat shield first. You'll have just enough room to get it out. Good luck!!
This method worked on a 2005 Ford Focus ZXW.

You need to widen the gap between the tabs. This will allow the alternator to slip over the bracket much easier. Get a socket big enough to allow the threaded insert to be driven inside it. (18/19mm) Then thread the bolt in a few threads and give the bolt a few taps with a hammer until the threaded insert moves about 1/8" or so. This will allow the alternator to fit easily in the bracket and the insert will be pulled back in as the bolt is tightened.

you dont have to take it off. remove the 2 15mm bolts and pry the bracket sideways w/ a prybar. This shortens your time. You most likely have a 90amp alternator so it should be small enough to slide through.

Sounds like the "long bolt" is frozen. It goes through the alternator housing and gets corroded. Also make sure the small bracket on the back is unbolted.
