    Default Vectra 3.0 cdti alternator??

    Hi all

    Yer, the alternator it err fell off!! Well the pulley did any way!! Lucky it was when I was just parking up in town after a 6 hour drive to Gatwick!!

    But what I am asking is has any one done this replacement before? It looks a pain and I was wondering what's the best way to do it? I have got a second hand one coming tomorrow off good old eBay I have got the old one unbolted and the problem is there is not enough room to get the wire off and even then I don't think it will come out because of all the other stuff in the way!!

    Any advice that will save me stabbing in the dare for the next few hours would be grate thanks

    Are there any guides for this? My alternator on the same model needs to come out too. Hunted high and low, and this seems to be as good as I get. Found the "how to" for the 1.9 (120 and 150), but nothing for the 3.0 tdci.. Anyone point me in the right direction please?

    I know it's an old thread, but is there anyway to change the alternator pulley on its own without removing the alternator? The idea of engine mounts, jacking engines, or lowering subframes just does not inspire me to change the alternator until it properly fails.
    My car has sounded like a bag of nails now for the last 18k miles..... Anyone?
