Re: Alternator light on

Yes that's what I thought too.

Re: Alternator light on

All have the regulator built in.
The better ones have a replaceable regulator so you can buy and fit a new regulator should it blow.

Re: Autocraft tow bar

Which tow bar did you get?
I have the detachable swan neck, but the fixed one on the autocraft site has a curved but of metal that the tow ball bolts onto.

Re: Autocraft tow bar

No pain, that's what the forum is here for :) Line up the tow bar using the horizontal slots on the brackets and the underside of the chassis rail, so you know you have it in the right position for the tow bar. The you can drill the holes for the vertical part of the bracket. Your bumper will be fur...

Re: Fuel Leak

Have you checked all fuel connections? Check the connection from filler cap to tank, check all your hoses for splits and loose connections in and out of the engine bay, check your fuel pump too.

Never heard it before, seemed to be less frequent the longer the engine ran. And seemed like it was the left hand side. ...
