I will tell you working on a caddy is never fun. But to answer the question one really has to be working on it. A lot of times you can back it out enough to clear the hole and lift it out with the alternator. Sometime you need to slide the shroud over enough to clear things.

You wete dead on, removed 2 screws and slid it over slightly. That long lower bolt and spacer cylinder were a massive pain.

Ended up replacing the alternator and the regulator
