Ive done all that but there is not enough clearence between the bracket and ac hoses to remove the alternator. How does the braccket come loose. I removed the 3 bolts at the bottom and one behind the tensioner any suggestion?

Make sure you have removed all the bolts first, then you may need to pry it out a little, its in there pretty snuggly. It should just lift right out.
