Ye gods! Is there an easy way to get this off? The bottom alternator bracket on Sven's broken, and the alternator's flapping about. I've just "obtained"/scrounged a replacement off the nice people at Savage Saab in Wycombe, and - boy, was it fun... The bolt going through the alternator is about twice as long as the space between the back of the bracket and the bulkhead. To get the three allen bolts holding the bracket onto the block, the alternator realistically has to come off (unless, of course, you *are* that double-jointed ET-lookalike?) - which it will only do with severe application of brute force and ignorance, to angle the alternator so the front comes clear of the bracket. Or is it just the world's most reliable alternator? -- Adrian dakar - at - achapman - dot - freeisp - dot - co - dot - uk Team Desert Vikings, Plymouth-Dakar 2004 - 1988 Saab 900i
