    Hi all, I've recently had to have the alternator repaired on my MK2.5 1.8. It was a bit of a pig to get it out of the car but it's now been repaired and should be good to go. Getting it back in the car disn't go so well though - it's bolted in place and the belt is back on, but it all went...

    Hi guys, I'm pretty sure my alternator's on it's way out so am looking for a replacement. Since my car has cost me Liberia's deficit in repairs and upgrades recently I can live without £250 for a Mazda part and wondered whether a £90 eBay special (new!) would be a reasonable proposition or a...

    Hi Guys - hope you can help (again!), Ive mentioned before I had a squealing noise - which was first traced to the gearbox but was actually the two belts. I bought new ones and tightened them correctly, but they keep coming loose. So once every 2 months I need to tighten them up again. Does...

    Need to slacken off the alternator belt, I tightened it too tight and now it sounds like a prius :( It's on my 95 NA 1.6 Is this is case of loosening the locking bolt, tightening bolt and lower bracket bolt and hitting it a whack?

    Hi guys, Finally got around to tightening the belt on the alternator.. BUT.. I'm left with this very irritating whining noise now under load. When tightening up the alt I removed the induction piping from the TB to the filter to get access to the alternator. Loosend the locking nut and...

    Hi Has anyone had problems with the "cogged" alternator belt from MX-5 Parts on a 1.6? Belt I removed was a standard OEM V Put one on today and it was really tight to get around the pullys, very little adjustment was avilable and alternator tilted over to the left as much as possible but I...

    Hiya, On my way home from work last night I heard a bit of rattling and clattering all of a sudden when I was at 77mph on the motorway, once I slowed down and came off the motorway there was an awfully loud squeal, I put this down to just coincidence and that it was just a belt slipping, so...
