The alternator has failed on our Giulietta. :grumpy:

I have sourced a replacement and was wondering about the complexity of removal/fitting.

Just how much needs to come off? It looks like the oil filter housing, driveshaft and track arm will have to come out, but does the engine need to be unbolted and pushed forward as well? Has anyone tackled this?

It looks like a small fuel leak at the back of the pump may have prematurely killed it. Hopefully its just a loose connection and not an internal seal....

The joys, eh?

I will leave this here in case it helps someone else.

The alternator was more tricky than difficult to take out. It actually had to come out the top, so engine mounts, exhaust manifold, fuel lines, coolent lines ( drain it all!) had to come out, and lever engine as far forward as possible.

Second hand OEM alternator from ebay went in, and hey-presto! Charging like a demon again. Only this time, the start/stop is working perfectly, which it never did previously. Looks like alternator was failing for some time.

£65 for s/h Alternator
£10 drive belt.
£70 labour

One happy julie back on the road.
