    '07 Optima 2.7l alternator change

    Has anyone changed the alternator on a '07 Kia Optima 2.7l V6? I have it almost out with the exception of the bracket...one of the bolt heads is behind the alternator's bolt and can't be accessed with a socket or wrench. How do I get to the last bracket bolt?

    Never did it on the 2.7, but don't know why one would remove the bracket and not just the alternator, but this might help:
