The alternator went on my 2006 115PS Mondeo diesel. I bought a new one from Europarts with a new belt. Bought a tool from laser to take the tension. But to be honest its a nightmare and cannot get the blet back on. It feels as if the adjuster is hitting something. If I detach the lower bolt on the spring for the adjuster I can slip the belt on. But then there is no way of compressing the spring to put the bolt back in.
Is there something I am missing trying to use the tool to take the tension off the belt to fit it??
Been on this for 2 days now. Getting fed up and need my car back on the road.
