Re: Glopsy

I think Denso DAN501 is the correct type. I've got a copy of the Denso application catalogue somewhere so I'll look it up...

https://www.autodoc.co.uk/denso/8223...SABEgLgIPD_BwE

Brand new, outright purchase (no exchange unit required) and delivery included. Denso and Bosch were the original alternator makes fitted to Multiplas by Fiat. The body of the Denso units is quite slim which makes it easier to get into place around the back of the engine.

Re: Glopsy

Having checked out a couple of used ones this evening, which to be honest were rather overpriced considering the cost of the Denso one found by WMF. If these are indeed the same size as the one fitted then I may just have a go at the job myself if I get a couple of hours to myself in the coming weeks.

Re: Glopsy

Just to confirm that a Denso DAN501 is the correct 105A alternator for 186A8.000 JTD engines with air con or climate control; also fitted to Marea JTD 105 & 110, 2.4 JTD, Multipla JTD 105 & 110. The Denso book also shows DAN502 (which is rated at 120A) as compatible.

Re: Glopsy

Pssst... the "reduction" on the site mentioned above varies daily, but is normally greatest on a Monday or Tuesday.

Delivery can take a week or ten days, but it does arrive.

Re: Glopsy

19% is the sweet spot. In the case of this alternator though, too much discount will end up costing you more. Free shipping to the UK only applies to orders over £102....

Re: Glopsy

Re: Glopsy

Thanks Fozzie. Free time is a rare thing at the moment not to mention the weather ! My local garage can do it for £150 with me supplying the alternator which I reckon is probably the better option for me at the moment.She's currently laid up on my drive until I can sort out the money to fix her or find a plan b.

If you were closer Iíd give you a hand, Iíve done the auxiliary belt, tensioner and alternator so itís easier to get done with that knowledge

No worries Fozzie. I'm lucky in that my wife has a little car that we can use until we decide what to do with Glopsy and the alternator hasn't stopped working yet , just making horrid dying noises !

Re: Glopsy

Good afternoon all. Thanks again for the Autodoc link, I've today ordered an alternator and when it arrives work out how it's getting fitted (i.e by me or my local garage).

Re: Glopsy

Alternator arrived safe and well this afternoon. So now all it needs is fitting and we're back on the road

Re: Glopsy

Good evening all. Well, I had all good intentions of getting the new alternator on this weekend but chickened out as it's just to cold and damp to spend hours lying on a gravel driveway so it's going into my trusted local garage on Wednesday. It's a shame in a way as I would've liked to have tackled it myself but the thought of fighting old nuts and bolts in this weather just isn't what I'd call fun spannering

Re: Glopsy

Evening all,
Glopsy is now up and running with her new alternator and sounds all the better for it
The garage said it was a pig of a job and that I was lucky to have swerved it. The old alternator was well and truly dead, with a really wobbly pulley and a huge crack in the metal housing . I'll post up a pic of it when I get a photo

Re: Glopsy

Well, it looks like the combination of my knackered alternator, cold weather and lack of recent use has killed the battery. I tried a trickle charge for a few days with no joy so we're off the road for a few days now until the new box of sparks turns up.
