Just had my altenator replaced in my 2005 Sebring conv. It was a b*tch to change. The key is to unclamp the hoses (not the a/c hose) just to get them out of the way. We also unscrewed the oil dip stick holder on the side for even more room. You'll also have to take off the two plugs to the altenator for free space. Take the two bolts off the top first the turn the altenator sideways to access that bottom bolt. You'll have to make short unscrewing motions due to space, but it will eventually be completely unscrewed. Removing the altenator is the next step. Again, with no space you'll have to shimmy and shake that 'til it comes out between all the stupid hoses and crap in the way. Shame on you Chrysler...bad set up...
