someone pls help me, I tried whole day, can't get the Alternator removed.

The Rear bolt is just too long to remove, I already lowed the engine to where the side panel had the deepest cavity, I tried to jack the engine very up, lowering it very down, moving it back and forth...but I can't move the bolt any further out...the bolt is still caught in the engine frame (probably 1/4" or a few mm left on the frame)
Even after I pried the alternator lose, the Alternator will still rotate around the rear bolt...

I watched a couple video on people removing the Zetec Alternator, I can't imagine some one can remove it with out removing the engine mounts

Seriously, how do you guys removed the alternator? Why the hack does ford made the bolt so long that it just bolt into nothing?
If no other solution, I guess I can only cut the bolt with a hacksaw blade...
