I suspect that my alternator is on the way out as it is not charging the battery and the lights on the dash are on when the engine is at low revs.
Does anyone have an instruction for alternator removal?
It is the type with a pump on the back complete with oil feed and return from the block.
It looks as though the airbox will have to come out at least.
The wiring loom to the alternator has been cut and re-joined using a rather clumsy connecting block.
Would this be for a regulator change?
Any guidance appreciated.

I replaced the alternator with a reconditioned replacement from QX Components. The cost was £165 and it arrived the day after ordering.
It went in easily enough. The main fixing bolt is very difficult to see but is accessible. Thankfully there was nothing seized. I also tidied the wiring by soldering the joints to replace the unsightly connecting block. I will probably replace the belts when I refresh the cooling system.
