Question Replacing EGR valve (2006 3.8L)

I remember reading a post about replacing the EGR valve without removing the alternator. (I searched but couldn't find what I was looking for). The lower bolt on the EGR looks really tough without getting the alternator out of the way. Any suggestions? Or, would it be easier in the long run just to move the alternator out of the way?

TIA,

Gary
