Mein Auto: 2005 X5
2005 X5 4.4 how to remove alternator?

I think my alternator is acting up, coolant tank sprung a leak a few months back and leaked all over the alternator. Now I'm getting intermittent 4x4, brake, oil pressure, and ABS lights. Read in one of these threads that the regulator or brushes may be the problem.
I tried to reach behind the alternator and remove the back cover, but rack and pinion or some other part is in the way. So now I'm trying to remove the alternator, looks impossible. So many things in the way, any tips? Car is a 2005 X5, 4.4L V8, alternator is on bottom left. Thanks
