Replacing the EGR Valve

Does anybody have the instructions on replacing the EGR valve? I need to replace mine. I tried cleaning it first but I was unable to completely remove the valve because one of the bolts is blocked by the alternator on the Hemi engine. Can the alternator easily be rotated down and to the right?

I believe you may be able to rotate the EGR valve as a whole once you have loosened the bolt that is difficult to get to and take off the bolt that is easy to get to.
