|15/03/2004 17:55:42||Alec||I believe you can just dump the regulator loom.|
|16/03/2004 11:17:47||Senor Burt||What model V**xh*ll? 9-3 or 9-5?
Seriously though, I'd be interested to know for future reference.
If the 96 plug doesn't fit into the back of it, you should be able to fit other connectors and/or extend the wiring that fitted onto the regulator. You just have to work out what connections correspond with the ones on the original.

3 distributors, all relays, switches, harnesses ... uNameIt
Nothing more than £5 plus post.

(for the fourth time)
I have had one of these modern alternators in my v4 for getting on for 2 years.
Dump the regulator and its sub loom. Just bolt on the main positive loops to the positive bolt and plug on the ignition warning light wire. Job done
|26/03/2004 19:27:26||jake||yes i agree with steve that sounds like the job on mine and it runs ok|
How about a picture or 2, a few words and some part/model numbers for a small technical article to help others?
|27/03/2004 17:21:43||Senor Burt||It would certainly save you having to repeat yourself for a fifth time.
Sorry, I wasn't listening the first 3 times.
|29/03/2004 13:33:02||steve h||oops.. almost volenteering for a club activity. Very un V4 owner of myself.
The halfords part number for the alternator is HAL434 and then I just used a couple of bolts and a hi fi restraining bracket to extend the top tensioning stay.
If the urge comes over me, i might take a photo.
|30/03/2004 11:24:38||Senor Burt||Do you know what model this alternator is from Steve? I am more likely to acquire one from my local scrapyard rather than Halfords.|
|01/04/2004 14:38:38||steve h||I think its a vectra or astra. If you can wait till next week, I can dig out the box and look properly.|
|01/04/2004 17:26:46||Senor Burt||No hurry, I'm just curious for future reference.|
