Default Alternator Replacement

I am currently trying to replace the alternator in my 2007 Santa Fe. It's a difficult task considering the location, but I finally have the fan's removed so I can get it out. My question concerns the electrical leads. It appears there is two, and one is a plug in?? I am trying to be careful and not break anything, but am I being to easy in trying to unplug the lead from the alternator. It doesn't seem to want to come out. Any suggestions? Also, how many bolts are holding the alternator on. The manual only mentions one, but I think I'm seeing 3. Is this correct?

Alternator comes out the bottom...

- 2 bolts through alternator to engine mounting (look at your replacement alternator)

- the connector can be a pain sometimes, matter of squeeze the lock tab and get the connector started to move past the lock

We put them up in air, lower frame at front a good bit, flip the belt, remove tensioner assembly, and remove compressor from block, then out comes the alternator,, usually a 2hr job round trip
<--- please fill in the 'location' and 'what you drive' boxes on your personal profile page.
