    Nice write up Leo. Good to hear your all sorted now.

    Unmounting the power steering pump may help getting the alternator out.

    Another good job completed. Could the previous owner have put an old/iffy alternator in when the belt was changed before?
    It IS very unusual for one of these to go.

    It could be an old high-mileage unit, and I'm leaning towards that being the case, it was still definitely a genuine Denso mind.

    Nice write up. Would it be worth highlighting the importance of the multimeter settings in case any damage could be caused accidentally to it (the multimeter that it)

    As far as I'm concerned it's just a matter of selecting volts in the double digits, I'm not aware of anything which could cause damage to it. Guess that shows my level of ignorance :Laughing:

    I'm not sure but I'm sure i read somewhere that you should always start with the highest setting and work your way down. But that may be more for when connecting inline and testing current because then you are running the current through the multimeter.

    That's right Graham, that's for reading amps. If you got the voltage range wrong it just won't display correctly.

    I'd imagine inline would be a different story, tapping a connection and connecting it "series", I wouldn't imagine there's any issue.
