    Default Alternator help!!!

    Chaps.....following the how to and was all going so well however after unbolting my alternator it refuses to come out!

    It is a 120 with only 2 bolts and both are out. There is some sort of collar on the top one. Do I have to pull this out or drive it in to release the thing?

    Any one have the answer for me?

    Sitting at the side of the road scratching my head!

    Are you sure its not the same as the 150 where there is also one bolt the belt side..

    you need to remove the two bolts at the top and the little bracket they go through to get the top to come free (again if its the same as the 150)

    There are only 2 bolts and some sort of collar on the 120, 2 of us changed mine about 18 months ago. Freed it in the end, but I can't remember how, sorry. We loosened the fuel filter crash box to give a bit more room, it can be removed completely but we found it wasn't necessary to do so.

    Thanks Folks

    Job done now. The alternator was just really tight in the mount and swivelled as if something was holding it.

    I think the collar just acts as a guide for the bolt.car 005edit.jpg

    BTW the helpful guy who sold me the alternator..(another Denso 105A) advised on charging the battery fully off the car and not letting the alternator do it as it might end up knackered pretty soon again!

    Might treat myself to a 140A alternator ready for next time!!!

    Car had done 108K but I have only had it from 83K but all the looms still looked like manufacturers fixings so maybe it is the first change?
