    Default 3.5 V6 Alternator Issues

    Does anyone have any experience in changing alternator bearings on an 2003 3.5V6 ?

    Have located bearing noise to the alternator and need some advice on tackling the removal of the alternator and what bearings I will need.

    Cheers

    I dont think you will have much luck over here with that we dont have that engine, biggest we have is a 3.2 V6.

    TBH we don't normally change the bearings, just fit a new or recon unit.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yeah yeah - it was like midnight over here when I posted it - my old man had a 3.5V8 Rover when I was younger and our last car was a 3.8V6 Holden so i kinda got muddled.....

    Thanks Big Sig.... I will look into a recon next week as I won't have time to strip the old one down then try and locate new bearings.... the wife never leaves it in the garage long enough !!
