tucson alternator removal

I have a 2007 tucson v6..i have the alternator part way removed but cant get the bottom bolt out,apparently hyundai and all their wisdom decided to put a bracket right behind the bolt which in turn stops the bolt from being pushed through..has anyone ever removed an alternator and how do i get the bolt out.

thanks for help guys,the but I figured it out after a full day at it:mad: the bracket on the engine block is slotted so the bolt slips into it the bolt don`t come out at all, you only need to remove the top bolt then slacken the bottom nut and pry or tap the alternator upwards from the bottom,i had to pull out the drive axle to get it out.
