Ok, My 85' Stock Westfalia Vanagon has a problem. My Alternator came loose and the 2 bolts
underneath the Alternator sheared right off, my guess is they were not replaced with the newer bolts
that the Bentley manual suggests. I pulled the Alternator off and it looks like one of them had broken
quite a while ago, Iv'e only owned it for about 2 years. I have studied what would normally be a
simple extraction but not with this, I called a few VW Mech's and 1 one would do it with a blank
check the other 2 just said no.. Any ideas? I cant even get a good tap with a punch let alone get a
drill in there...Anything would help...
If you cannot get a drill and tap into there...you're gonna haveta lower the engine out of the bay. Sorry...it sucks. Be extra careful about the fuel lines, too.
