Vito 108cdi Alternator Replacement !!!!

Well, just thought id let you know about my experience with the alternator change.

Obviously i couldn't see the alternator from the top so quickly located it underneath, BEWARE, this is a royal pain in the arse, Unbolting the alternator is straight forward once removing the inspection panel from wheel arch, you have to remove the black brackets from engine to turbo, remove bolts from intercooler pipe under the sump to give some movement and also you have to drop the steering rack, and split the rack from the steering coloum, once you have done all this you can munch your head with the crazy puzzle of monuevering the alternator out of the engine bay, if you cant do it straight away, have a brew and come back to it. Then just put it back together, Simples.......

For me, this was a bit of a nightmare, but saved a bit of money and just got stuck in. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THAT TAKE THE CHALLENGE..............
