You could do it and you could pick an alternator off a scrappy or used car breakers for a lot less. Someone recently bought one for about £20, fitted it and it solved the problem. so I dont see it being too bad!
I tried to find some decent manuals online on how to change alternators but I couldn't find any.
Could you please point me into the right direction?
All I have done so far on my car is changed fuel injectors and spark plugs Nothing else really... =]
