Question about 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata
Just about every "something else" is always removable but many times you don't need to do that. If the bolt is clear of the threads, you may be able to just leave it in there and remove it with the alt, then put it in place before putting it back up. Otherwise, you may need to remove or at least loosen up whatever is in your way. Sometimes just gently lifting the engine a bit or turning the wheels will add clearance to what you are doing so don't forget to look and see what can be done and think about it a bit. Many times a chiltons or haynes manual will have exactly the instructions you need to get around problems like this. I don't work on those much anymore and my instructions are exactly what I'd do if faced with your problem and had no reference.
