    Audi A3 -99, Generator bearings gave up so ordered "new" from scrap yard, well mounted I discovered the connector for charge regulator(?) is not same on new gen as old. On my old gen connector is D-shaped, at new it is square shaped, same connector pins inside though.
    Question is, are regulators same on new/old gen ? If I modify connector to fit my new gen, which pin will go where ? cant find any markings on any connector. Is it really a A3 generator I've got ?
    Ideas appreciated

    Answering myself here.
    There are at least 2 different models of 14volts, 90amps bosch generators available, in large they are same and will look same, difference is connector at backplane for charge regulator, one is square, 16x12mm, other one is D-shaped, 20x25mm.
