Thread: Alternator - workshop!

    Alternator - workshop!

    Right then here's the story

    Driving home from work today I got a warning message on my display reading alternator workshop!
    This was joined by the battery light coming on.

    When I pulled over to check, the pulley down below the alternator (thin black belt) was wobbling quite bad and the belt was very loose.

    So my question is this would this problem with the lower pulley cause the alternator to fail to charge correctly, and is the pulley manual or self tensioning.

    Many thanks in advance

    I'm hazarding a guess but I would say with a tight belt the lights would go away... but other than that... your on your own
