Re: Traitor

Hi Guys,

Only one forum for me ;)

May need to extend a bit further as the Carcoon bought for the NB is wider than originally thought :oops:

Re: Alternator

HI Naki,

I think from below is going to be the best way... :D

Ive not disconnected any wires yet, should I do this before undoing the alternator or is there enough flex to allow me to do it when its off.

Cheers
