3. with engine on and (rear heat screen,AC half power, fog light,Xenon, Radio- All on!)- 14,44V
4. after all, engine off on the battery was-13.06V
What do you think? Exchange must alternator? Or have just changed the alternator regulator?
Those figures are slightly high. However your reading with the engine off is also high (there are six 2.1V cells in a car battery - making 12.6max). It is possible your meter is not accurate. Can you check with another just to be sure.
It was hard getting over my addiction to the Hokey Cokey, but I've turned myself around and that's what it's all about.
Currently in twodogs's garage:
