Question 2007 Camry V6 serpentine belt tensioner removal

I have a quick question, I have read online on how to remove the belt tensioner but almost everything I have seen is for a 4 cylinder model, not the v6. I have the new tensioner at hand and it looks like the mounting bracket bolts are blocked by the alternator. My question is do I really have to remove the alternator to replace the belt tensioner or am I just looking at it wrong. I know if I remove the alternator that I would also have to remove the radiator. I just do not want to do it if I do not have to. Please advise, thank you.

Alt needs to come out. Remove radiator upper hose and radiator fan.

Remove passengers side pulley cover to help with access.
