A/c fix?

So I'm working on a body lift for my buddy's 06 edge? And the part we are stuck on is the a/c host alternator problem, can't figure out how to "fix" it as the instructions and everyone e says... Any help maybe pictures? Right now it's being held out of the way by cable ties, but neither of us are confident on it's long term durabiliy...

Help us appreciated and time is a factor as us needing to go to work is coming very soon

It's pretty straight forward. This is really only a concern on 4.0 SOHC engines. You can see just how close the belt gets to the a/c hose near the belt tensioner. The ? shaped bracket bolts to an existing stud that just's there doing nothing. lol. There may be tweaking to the hose to make it clear even more. Every SOHC install I've done required more than the ? shaped bracket gave, just for extra clearence and peace of mind having it farther away from the belt.

Like this....

yeah, no probs. That tcase bracket, don't even worry about it. I've never had to do anything with the Tcase wiring in the 4 truck's I've lifted. Most don't either. If anything, unclip the christmas tree on the case.
