Hi Simon - yeh like most modern cars space is a bit tight - 1. staking the fuel filter out helps give a bit of space. The
Haynes manual isn't a great help but it says as follows
1. Disconnect the cables
2. Remove the auxilary belt
3. Remove the idler pulley
4. Loosen the alternator bolts
The say it isn't necessary to withdraw the top bolt entirely - just make sure the nut is removed and slide it forward and it should drop out of its supporting bracket which is slotted.
Just hope that is of some help - have plenty of band aids ready for your knucles
