Question about Renault 181
Is it a straight on and off job or is there timing issues
No issues with timing for an alternator. Just make sure you retension through belt firmly after install.

Just took one out last night. It also was stuck. Had to use small pry bar to get off the front mount. Sprayed the mount with PB blast to help. You do have to use some force, becareful not to break any electrical connections. Once the front mount was free, I had to pry up on it using a small hatchet. Only thing that would fit and actually be able to pry. The alternator became twisted from prying only on one side, so I used a block of wood and tapped it back straight. It finally released from the mounts and came loose. Then the fun begins in trying to actually get it out. Had to disconnect everything around it, took two people and alot of twisting and turning. Not looking forward to getting it back in. Removal took over 2 hours.

Firstly you need to know the make of the towbar, then you can download the fitting instructions from the towbar manufacturers website. As far as electrics are concerned, I would recommend NOT using the secondhand electrics that you have unless you have a dedicated plug-in wiring kit as the wires were probably cut and may now be too short to use and the sockets may not be in tiptop condition, It's well worth the small expense af replacing them. The actual wiring will depend on what year and model the car is.
