AS THIS IS A SOD OF A JOB I WOULD RECOMMEND FITTING A NEW ALTERNATOR AS I HAVE HEARD IT AS A COMMON FAILURE PROBLEM ON THESE CARS.

AFTER REMOVING WHEEL, SPLASH SHIELD AND AUX BELT THEN DISCONNECT BATTERY AND REMOVE REMOVE TRACK ROD NUT AND RELEASE TRACK ROD END THEN REMOVE THE DRIVESHAFT!!!!

YOU COULD POSSIBLY DO THE JOB WITHOUT DOING THIS BUT ACCESS IS VERY VERY VERY LIMITED

TRY AND REMOVE DRIVESHAFT INTERMEDIATE BEARING BRACKET. HA HA HA

GIVE UP ON THIS THEN

REMOVE THE TWO 10MM BOLTS AND BRACKET ON SIDE OF ALTERNATOR THAT SUPPORT IT

THEN GET AS MANY 1/2" EXTENSIONS YOU CAN FIND AND A UJ BENDY ONE TO ENABLE YOU TO REACH AND RELEASE THE TWO RETAINING BOLTS 13MM

ONCE THESE ARE RELEASED THEY SHOULD TURN BY FINGER IF YOU CAN REACH THEM. THEY ARE PRETTY INACCESIBLE

REMOVE THE BOLTS AND PRISE THE ALTERNATOR OUT .

REMOVE THE WIRES AND TAKE ALTERNATOR OUT OF CAR.

REPLACEMENT IS A REVERSE OF THIS BUT TO MAKE MY LIFE EASIER I REMOVED THE MOUNTING BRACKET AND FITTED THE NEW ALTERNATOR TO IT AND FITTED IT WITH ONLY 2 BOLTS, THE LOWER ONE AND THE ONE ON THE OTHER SIDE WITH THE SUPPORT BRACKET. YOU WILL SEE HOW WITH IT REMOVED. NAUGHTY BUT EASIER!!!!

THIS ONLY TOOK ME ABOUT 9 HOURS!!!!!!
