i changed my alternator in 45 mins start to finish

no need to drop engine etc just headlight, bonnet and alternator supporting bracket(black thing bolted to side of inlet) need to be removed

when you actually have all the tools there and the right knowledge on how to do it its really really easy!

7mm allan key
22mm spanner for tensioner
10mm spanner for headlight bolts
13mm spanner for bonet bolt

i think its a 16mm for the supportind bottom bolt of the alternator and a 13mm for the top bolt and supporting arm.

thanks to dannyb1986 on here for guiding me through it, i guess once you've done it once you wonder what all the fuss is about!
