Any one able to help regarding any trickls to getting the alternator out of the Nissan Patrol Series 2.

Spent a couiple of hours last night trying to get it out but its a bitch of a thing.

Pipes and hoses all around it and impossible to get ito with any hands or fingers to do the biz.

What about making sure the belt can go back on - any tips.

Very new to all this but they want over a thou to do the job up here [Broome WA]and I don't have a hundred let allone a thou.

Only have mobile access to net at the minute but will check back later on today for any assistance - any provided will be appreciated.

Regards

Just make sure the aircon pipe is back in correct position before tightening the alternator bolts.

Take a photo of your belt before removing it will help you when it comes to put it back on.

The truth............

Said to 21 yo Mechanical Fitter son and daughters 18 yo Marine Diesel Mechanic boyfriend to get there bot bot to where the Nissan was and fix it.

Next time I get to see Nissan problem fixed - Turns out that alternator being buggered was wrong diagnosis - wire being cracked at back of alternator [earthing wire I think from what was described]

437 dollars wasted on new alternator which was fitted to vehicle without needing to be - wire issue only came to light after the old one was taken off.
