Alternator replacement on 05 ZX3 2.0

Alright guys, new guy here. So is the easiest way to get the alternator out of this car is to take the lower motor mount bolt out and try to rock the motor forward to get it out from between the half shaft and steering rack? I replaced the alternator once before about two years ago and remember having to do that. Had the old one rebuilt and they obviously didn't replace the bearings cause they failed and now the thing fell apart.
