Default 1999 Concorde 3.2 Alternator removal

Ok, so I have taken the belt off, the power cables from the alternator, the bottom alternator bolt and the brace bolt off, but the top alternator bolt is very long and hits the front of the car which keeps it from unscrewing completely so now I can't get the alternator out. What do I need to do?
Thanks in advance.

IM assuming you have removed the upper radiator support? You can wiggle teh bolt past all that by moving the radiator back some.

Thanks, I got the alternator in but still having the same issue. The engine will turn over, but will only occasionally start. I have also replaced the battery, spark plugs, valve gaskets and ignition coils. It is throwing two error codes P1294 and P1792. Is it possible that a vacuum leak will cause the car not to not start? If that's the case why does it start occasionally? Any thoughts? I was thinking maybe it was the fuel pump or injectors?

fuel pressure test and a spark test se which one you are missing when it wont start. FYI an alternator has nothing to do with starting a car.

Ok, well I figured a few things out. The car will start if you disconnect the battery for about 10 min. and then reconnect the battery. After driving for awhile the check engine light comes on and it will still continue to start even with the check engine light on. It is only after the engine temperatures go back down the car needs another reset to start. Codes are P1294 and P1792.
