  1. The alternator is not charging the battery in my coupe S with a GT engine. When I bought the engine, the seller gave me a brand new alternator (9AR2896G). The mount will need drilled out or the mount itself slaved to suit the top bolt diameter. That's not a problem but the new alternator has a connection which should have a 3 pin plug on one side and a separate spade connector (B+) on the other. Any help with this would be much appreciated. This car is staring to do my head in!
  2. I've noticed in the past month or so what I thought was tappets squeaking. It's not really tappy; just a hint of 'tinkle'. It's loud enough to be obvious in the car. Then I found it would go away when the lights are turned off, and come back when switched on. It also seems more noticeable when first started cold, and can only be heard at idle or when throttle is blipped (hence me thinking it was the tappets) - cold alternator bearings? The alternator bearings do rumble. If the sound isn't the tappets, is it alternator loading down with the lights? Or can engine load down with lights causing sound in some way?
  3. Hello everyone. Ill double this post as my greet as neither seemed long enough for seperate posts. Im felix. Always enjoy a good forum and ive always loved vws but nwver had one. Just got my first 6n2. And within 48 hours i breakdown. Had engine management light. And around 2 hours later battery light.(to which i started to head home around 13miles and brokedown after 10 miles) and just prior to it dieing had the ecm. Abs. Temp. Airbags and oil pressure lights come on. Car then died and would just click and not start. I think ive traced it to either alternator or the alternator to battery lead. Id really appreciate input/advice as im self taught and may be going wrong! Also if anyone knows anyone in cardiff who comes out with a fancy vag laptop to diagnose please holla! Nice to meet you all and thanks 🙂
  4. Been offered a refurb Bosch Alternator with 2 year warranted for AFH 1.4 16V 1998 Can someone please check part number and also the info below. Part no: 021903017A Voltage (V) 12 Amperage (A) 90 Rotation CW Pulley Type Fixed Pulley Grooves 6 Plug Code 25 thank you.
  5. Hi everyone, I need some assistance in fitting a new alternator - the problem is that I can't get the alternator back into its mount. When I removed the old alternator I used the claw (crowbar thing) from a hammer to force the alternator out. However its now too tight to fit a new or the original alternator back in. What would you recommend? I thought filing a few mm off the alternator might do the trick but I thought I would check here before I ruin anything. I've tried to rotate the spacer (shown in photos) but it doesn't seem to budge after soaking it in gas plus and using a wrench (vice grip). I've attached a few photos to help show my dilemma. Thanks in advance for any advice :-)
  6. Hi everyone, I'm struggling to remove the alternator from a 1994 VW Polo MK2F AAU. The bolt, which the alternator pivots around, touches the chassis wall and won't budge. I've made a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUxVYt-CSO0 The Haynes manual suggests that the bolt should come out but I think its referring to the G40, and the bolt mounts the other way around? Can someone offer a suggestion? Thank you,
  7. I have been offered a brand new alternator by Global Power brand for around £50 pounds. It is a 90A On my 16v 6N, it has 70A one installed. My car is without the air con. Would 90A one be okay? Does it tax anything on power? Not electrically minded so guessing it only draws power when things are switched on /being used.
