    Hi, I have changed my alternator today, taking off airbox, maf, inlet plenum etc. I put everything back together today and it ran very lump like it was cutting out the fuel or something, the car had a very strong smell of petrol too.

  11. Mk2 Lighting & Electrical
    Just a warning there is a 'bad batch' of alternators which are the same as the ones supplied by ford themselves, so the Ford dealers may well have some too, there has been a product recall on this as of Friday just gone (06/07/2012 - but this is only when the suppliers to the garage I took mine...
