Quick update. I charged the battery overnight and refitted this morning. Turned ignition on and all usual lights lit up, car started fine and on the run to school felt very good, probably the best in a while. Ran rear screen, headlights, fan on full and radio as well as electric windows up and down, no warning light no discernable dip in revs when stationary.
Before fitting the battery in I did wiggle, poke and generally prod anything I could also checked the belt was tight. It did not feel like I moved the alternator at all but it may have shifted a fraction and tightened the belt just a little. I will keep an eye on it and post back later, but fingers crossed.
