    Default Has anyone replaced the main bearing in this alternator



    I can just make out a ďMade in FranceĒ so I guess itís a Valeo and it fits my KAD43. The main (pulley end) bearing has play in it so needs replacing. The boats in Spain so if I knew the code of the bearing I could buy in the UK and replace next out in November.
    Anyone done the job?
    Itís working so I donít want to pull it apart now to find the bearing code.

    Yeh, looks like a 'Valeo'
    Looks like you are in Brum
    More bearings there than you can shake a stick at!
    bloody so frustrating
    If yer aint going out there till next November
    Aint it worth paying a Bod to out there for a few San Miguels to whip it off and get the bearing number?
    Sorry to be so flippent
    But my first Post on here back in the day was about my alternator on my Volvo engined Nimbus

    Your reply is great and made me smile.
    Iím actually in Spain now with last full day tomorrow. I was rather hoping not to spend it pulling an alternator apart.
    Letís hope for some detailed replies (not that yours wasnít useful of course)

    Why not bring the whole thing back to the UK? I had a car alternator fixed the other week and it was only £45.

    Good point. I’ve got my car here this time but flying out in November. I could book it into hold baggage on the way back for £30 or so.
    I had been looking at Keypart (probably Chinese) replacements but I think I’d rather a repaired Valeo
