the regulator is integrated in the alternator. For the original-gen 900, this is about the easiest thing to get to. Right in the face of the alternator, with 2 screws and a black circular plastic front. Likely reads "Bosch" on it. Also heed the brush replacement tip, making this job a no-brianer. It's the brushes that wear out causing problems. -chris 87 9000 T, 240k km, with a new regulator 97 900 T, 140k km, soon... dmk wrote: > > On 11/9/2002 9:17 AM, Frans Snoeren wrote: > > Hi Chris, > > The regulator has the brushes integrated. > > Do not trow it away, replace the 2 brushes on the old one, it saves about 49 > > $ > > "Chris Ault" <caultnopsamna.com> wrote in message > > news:3DCC0891.839CB370nopsamna.com... > > > >>Ditto the comments on just getting it broken in. > >> > >>After being stranded one time too many (once) I now make it a rule to > >>replace the voltage regulator at 100k miles, whether it needs it or not. > >>$50 part. 10-minute job. *NOT* being stuck battery-dead on a highway > >>late at night while pulling a boat: priceless. > > > > > > > > > > Any online help as to where this is even at? > > TIA > -- > dmk
