Mark :

Hello.

Mark :

I would agree with you that it is most likely to be a loose connection.

Mark :

If you intend doing it yourself then you should disconnect the battery negative terminal first before checking the cables at the back of the alternator. Also check the engine earth strap connection is clean and tight.

Mark :

Also check the drive belt tension is set correctly.
