    Question Alternator Positive...? (Big 3 Upgrade on a 1.8)

    Hi all, I'm after doing the Big 3 on my veccy, managed to do the Alternator Negative ('Engine') to Chassis by using the Alternator's cage/frame as it grounds through it; and Negative Battery to Chassis, but I cannot do the Alternator Positive to Battery Negative... ...How can you get to the Alternator's Positive terminal...?

    I know some people will mention a 'power cap', I'm not after that solution as I've used them in the past, and tbh the Big 3 will strengthen the car's electrical system as a whole...

    Your help is much appreciated...!!!

    - Harry.

    Just to give this a bit of a Bump guys, as there seems to be a fair few of us who want to work out how to get to rhe Alternator Positive pole...The only way I can see fit at the moment is to remove the aux belt, and then to remove the alternator as a whole just to fit this Positive feed wire...

    Anybody? You'd be helping out lots of 1.8 owners (come on cdti owners fire us some ideas, put the reliability differences aside :P )...
