Hi guys, my 6 rib drive pulley on my alternator came off yesterday and dropped into the undertray making the battery light come on.
I have now organised a new Lucas alternator and new drive belt to be fitted tomorrow by a mechanic friend from rork. Is there any hard and fast rules to removing and replacing one of these. An RAC guy did tell me that the two rear bolts are tapered? Any other advice appreciated.
