What is the voltage that the battery and alternator are putting out?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Alternator was fluctuating between 31-34v and the rac chap said the battery was fine but didn't tell me the voltage

Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 2 years ago.
That is to high for the alternator, the alternator is overcharging and will cause the issue that you are having.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

What do I need to do to rectify this

Expert:  mike_a_mechanic replied 2 years ago.
Because the alternator is overcharging it will need to be replaced.
