    Hi all,

    My alternator clutch pulley has seized so wants replacing. I haven't checked pricing with the main dealers yet, but there's a few on Ebay that will fit, I have all the tools to do it, new drive belt & tensioner also; so I just need the part. Had a look on EuroCarParts, but couldn't find it. Its a common problem, so where did you guys buy yours?

    Hi Lund

    Mine has done exactly the same as yours and need the same parts you listed, my alternator pulley fell off!

    Did you replace the pulley or get a new alternator?

    Woops! I'm guilty of not having changed it yet, I still need a pulley - where to buy from?
