My alternator bearing is a bit like me - getting grumblier - Its a Bosch one and I suspect original. I see the Lucas version is over £100 cheaper are they interchangeable?

Oh - doing the RS pulley at the same time thumbsup

Yes....did consider that option however similar cost if not more than a large European parts dealer with discount codes - especially for the Lucas one which, with a bit of research have discovered it's a returned/refurbished Bosch - ain't the web wonderfully and full of stuff!

Hi Colin

Whichever unit you decide to go for, when you pick it up, do check the splines in the mani shaft are in good condition

No affiliation to these guys but a member on here bought one from them and said that he received excellent service. Might be worth a look.

Thanks for the info that is a good price - when I dismantled everything its actually the impeller bearing making 'most' of the noise so the alternator probably has a few miles in it yet - having said that with discount codes and a previous credit I got the Lucas one from ECP for under a £100 so seemed sensible to replace when I had everything out...got one to dismantle now!

Now to paint the housing and fan or not, to be honest the fan has cleaned up nicely.... Question
