How do I change the alternator in my vw polo p reg - 7f88f79.gif
Alternator belt routing — all except VR6, with power steering, no A/C


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wiring from the alternator. If necessary, mark the wires with tape or other means to ensure they are connected properly upon installation.
  3. Loosen the belt tension, and remove the drive belt from the alternator. On VR6 (AAA) engines only, remove the belt tensioner from the cylinder head.
  4. Remove the alternator adjustment bolt, followed by the pivot bolts.
  5. Carefully lift the alternator from the bracket. To install:
  6. Hold the alternator in position on the mounting bracket, and install the pivot bolt. On later engines with automatic belt tensioners, install the upper mounting bolt.
  7. Install (but do not tighten) the alternator adjustment bolt (earlier models only).
  8. Place the alternator drive belt on the pulley.
  9. Adjust belt tension and tighten the mounting and adjustment bolts as necessary.
  10. Connect the wiring to the alternator. If tape was used to identify the wires, make sure it is removed once the wires are connected.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable.

Snapped alternator belt


if its a similar engine to the standard vw's then you can bend the spring loaded tensioner right behind the alternator with a spaneer (shifting spanner works well) and it loosens the belt.
