Default Remove alternator - what am I doing wrong

I am doing the grounding piece on my04. I got all the points done, except the alternator bolt. It is the long bolt that connects the alternator and A/C unit.

Well I got the back nut, plate piece off and the bolt threaded all the way to the alluminum back on the alternator itself.

I am assuming you took the belt off the alternator. If not, it coudl be under enough tension that you will have a hard time getting the bolt out.
