If your car has A/C it helps to remove the 4 long mounting bolts off the compressor. Just enough to slide it over to allow for more clearance. I figured that one out in a mall parking lot late one night trying to switch mine out.

No wait, forget all that. That helps for the water pump. Alt goes in from the top. A lot of wiggling helps. No removing engine mount for me. But I did remove the plastic tower to get it in a remounted it once it was down there.
