if you look on the 'hinge' long bolt point of the alternator that passes through the bracket you should notice that there is a round 'ring' type dowel that surrounds the bolt this locates the alternator to the bracket and has to be pushed off

once you've removed the long bolt use a piece of tube or similar to tap the edge of the dowel out of the hole and so release the alternator
