Upper belt roller removal

Today I have been busy with replacing the belt rollers. The roller at the botton was easy peasy to change. But when I tried to remove the upper at the alternator, I got problems.
The bolt holding the roller is to long to get out, because of space in front of it.
After some googling, it seems that the trick is to turn the bolt slightly out and hammer it so a sleeve in the ende gets loose. It was of course stuck after 20 years. Have now soaked it 556 for curing over night.
Hoping for better luck tomorrow.

If somone has tips that can help me further it would be great.

Yes, that long bolt sits in a cradle. When it is loosened, the alternator tilts up on the right with the left bolt being the axis.
