Aye, the top bolt at the rear can be a challenge!

Done a couple now, repaired as per Mark and Kevin's guide on here.

Repaired it with instructions from the Master

About 75-90 minutes including the regulator pack swap if youíve borrowed tools (and put LPG stuff in the general vicinity too ::);)

But that did include tea ;D

I ended up doing it 4 times during my Omega ownership, despite vowing never again after the first time.  ::)

It's actually fairly straight forward, but the first time is a nightmare!  ;)

Got two thirds of one here :D

But given that a blind monkey scratching its arse could change the alternator in about five minutes flat, it probably won't help ::)

Got two here - An Elite saloon in Star Silver and the project MV6 estate in red. I seem to have used the OOF logo as a buyers guide  ::)



Pity I didn't take photos when I did my alternator regulator.............
