    As the title suggests my bearings have acquired a squeal when stated in morning and sounds a bit rattly when running warm so think it's on it's last legs.

    If anyone has got Elsawin and wouldn't mind helping me out by emailing me a PDF on exchanging bearings I'd be most appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Be supprised if that is covered as I would expect the standard procedure to be change the whole unit, but I could be wrong.

    Doubt very much if you can get just the bearings but I might be wrong.

    The squeal on starting is often associated with a slack belt - worth checking.

    cheers

    Just checked Elsawin and ETKA parts catalogue and alternator bearings do not appear in either manual.

    However, a Bosch unit for a 2.0 litre diesel is listed as £370 so I'd either keep looking or get a replacement from a motor factor !!

    Good luck
