- Whats the vehicle Reg or VIN?
Ok. Alternator listed for that car is 100amp type you need.
Best getting decent socket set/swan neck ring spanners with long extensions for the top bolt.you only have 2. your going to have to get the drivers wheel off, remove the intake air box completely, remove your belt by backing off the tensioner "new belt would be worth getting too", and the engine cover, support the car with an axle stand on that side because you'll need to go under the car above the oil filter housing you'll see you bottom bolt.the top one will be alot more tricky as you need to go in the from the top and from the back of the engine.the alternator on the back with a have plug to remove,bolt terminal 13mm if i recall.then it basically either manipulate it out from the back or drop it out down beyond the subframe,getting it in will be a task as its best to have another person in from the top guide it back in.
No problem at all Steven. Best of luck with the repair and thank you again for visiting Justanswer
