ALTERNATOR QUESTION. Sorry has nothing to do with the title of this thread but I didn’t want to open new one.

 

i had my alternator replaced 2 years ago. Overhauled part. Is working flawless but makes noises from the very first day.  The mechanic maybe should hear it before replacement but he didn’t. Now he is in and because it’s a pita to replace we didn’t change. Just the noise is a bit annoying. 

Is there a chance to replace the bearing without taking the alternator out of the car? 

Thank you

@Lewis  how long did it take for you to replace?

i remember you was very disappointed 

The second time was much quicker and having the Hitachi brand which is the right size to fit through the small space. 

It takes about 3-4 hrs to get it out if your not familiar, once you know, it can be removed in 1.5 hrs I reckon. 

Either way it's a whole days work to remove and refit new.

Thank you Lewis. The Hitachi is fitting without correction of the water  cooling lines?

Hitachi should be what's already fitted and yes doesn't required any modifications and is small enough to fit though the tight space you will have to turn and drop it though.

Top tip:- the way you take it out remember the angle and position so when you put in the new one it goes in easy. 

The other brand Delphi is a total b * tch to install or remove as it's bigger!

Never again .............
