Re: How to Change the Alternator Clio Mk1 1.4
The Alternator on my mothers one had failed and I followed the Haynes guide which claimed you could lift it out from above.
Maybe on a LHD you could but the master cylinder for the brakes gets in the way.
Anyway, I then found this thread and was shocked at the steps required to get the alternator out.
Thus I wondered if an alternate method existed and yes, I have found if you unbolt (3 x 16mm) the starter motor and small bracket above (holding pipes) that you can then withdraw the alternator that way.
Takes some wangling to get it out but it can be done.
