    Hi, I have recently been having a few electrical issues. The low battery light has come on a few times with no real pattern to when this happens. The voltage on the battery is fine and she has also had a new alternator so I'm thinking I could rule out those. In addition to the low battery light...

    Some advise please. I have noticed that my voltage on my alternator varies when driving, in the morning when I first start my car the voltage is around 14.6 volts once I've been driving for 30 minutes or so the voltage drops to around 12.6 is this correct or do I have a faulty alternator.

    Hi All, Calling anyone who has changed an alternator on a Clio II 1.5dCi (02 reg) please - the lower mounting bolt is quite hard to get to, my normal spanners and socket are a bit short. Is a long breaker bar or a longer offset ring spanner the best tool to get to it? Cheers in advance

    Hello, The alternator on my 2004 SL17 80+ (62kw) has packed up. My problem is that it was incorrectly replaced only about 2years ago. I would not expect it to give up so soon (Lucas LRA01990) but I don't have the original alternator to confirm what was originally fitted. There are several...
