    I have done it to my 1.8 and it seems to made an intermintant difference... Think I need a better engine mounting point lol....

    But to answer your question you can do this on any engine model.

    Mount it from the Suspension strut bolt - Engine Mount bolt. I originally had it from Suspension strut - Alternator casing but once I changed it to the Engine Mount, it actually made a noticeable difference, the display no longer dims when I use the power steering etc like it used to. Make sure you scrape the paint away from the Suspension strut surrounding so it's metal to metal contact.

    I'm actually trying to do the big 3 but I can't for the life of me get to the Alternator Positive...

    I have noticed nothing when I did it yesterday, but think I will move it on the engine as I think it might be in the wrong place as its under the bolt that holds the turbo intercooler pipe to the rocker cover.

    my stud snapped when putting the nut on so for now i have put it on to what i think is a lifting point which is about an inch further to the right from the stud with bolt and penny washers. will this still work/be a decent earth or should i drill out the stud and refix? http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...45#post1611045 you can see where i mean in this pic its the other side of the hose from the stud.
    many thanks
