Cuore Alternator Problems


We have a 1998R Cuore (849cc manual). A clattering noise was coming from the alternator and now the battery warning light has come on. On the last trip we lost all electrics, so we are presuming the alternator has finally packed up??

Does any one know how much an alternator is, where to get one (don't really want to have to go to Daihatsu to get it fixed), and how easy it is to fit?


Provided you get an alternator of the correct rating there should be no problem. Just take the old one to your local motor shop and get it matched. Try Halfords or a good motor shop. If you need a cheap supply go to a scrap yard where 2nd hand should cost very little.

Removal should take just a few minutes.
