    Alternator and aux belt

    Howdy give mind Ph2 ‘02 172 has what look like new belts and is driving very well. No documented service history until I got my hands on it. No idea if the previous owner or the one before did this, but the alternator top bolt is missing so the alternator is sitting on the metal a/c pipe and...

    Is this alternator fixable? Are the metal casings available to buy...

    Currently completing my 'winter build'. One of the main issues was with one of the alternator bolts wiggling its way out over the course of a track day. This caused the alternator to vibrate with the ending being the bracket on the alternator snapping. I was wondering if anyone knows if youre...

    Just run up #17 and checking aux belt, as just changed it, noticed the alternator was very hot to the touch. Is this normal bear in mind i'do only run the Clio for 2-4 minutes. Never felt one before after engine running so nothing to compare it too.

    Alternator Broken, Possible Water Damage?

    So, my alternator is knackered. Car broke down on NYE with a flat battery, and the AA man quickly diagnosed the alternator which I'd known might have been a problem for a little while because of the STOP and battery light that had been flickering. The AA man got it working again by giving it a...

    Alternator Woes

    Just wondering if anyone know whether a 225 alternator will fit onto the 197. I've been told it does and I can get hold of one much easier than I can a 197 item. Anyone? @Scrooge @Budgie
