caliber 40 impeller change

I have a caliber 40 with a Yanmar 46jh engine. I need to inspect/change the raw water impeller but it faces aft underneath the alternator on the port side and there is a solid wall right nest to the engine. Has anybody any advice on how to inspect and or change the impeller in this configuration. It appears to me that this is a very poor design and would take major engine disassembly to do this, not something that could be done at sea in an emergency. Any advice would be appreciated.
