    Default 307 alt belt removal

    G'day chaps. My partner's 307 alternator carked it and needs to be removed for repair.
    According to the Haynes manual, the pulley requires considerable force to release the belt.
    I'm no Arnie Schwarzenegger and no idea what entails 'considerable force'.
    Any tips in this would be greatly appreciated.
    cheers, Mark.307 alt belt removal-307-alt-pulley.jpg

    Thanks for the tip pugwash.
    Discovered that this car has only one keyed door...the driver's.
    If the battery becomes discharged, there is no way to lock the car.
    After charging up the battery and cleaning up the connections, I can now simply drive it to the auto electrician and let them
    deal with it.
    Lesson learned.
    cheers, Mark.

    Auto electrician replaced the alternator with a new one.
    Apparently ALL the rebuilds come back.
    He said it managed to fry the battery and would start blowing globes...
    My question would be 'What role does the fuse box perform in this car?'
    Wallet is now $900 lighter.
    cheers, Mark.

    I'm sorry for your wallet. When the alternator isn't keeping the battery charged the first thing you usually notice as the voltage falls is a cranky computer. The car may refuse to start, or sometimes the car performs a circus act with various electric bits and bobs.
