Vauxhall Zafira Alternator Removal (1.6 2005)


Novice Member
Hi, I've gone to remove an alternator from a Zafira only to find there isn't enough space to remove the lower bolt without lowering the engine! Has anyone come across this before/knows a solution without having to lower the engine? Thanks in advance!

Don't remember lowering the engine on a Zafira, but if you must, you must.

Just done one on a Yaris, had to remove top engine mounting and bar the engine forward with a scaffold pole to remove the alternator.

I was very lucky and managed to gain just enough access by lifting the engine about half an inch ! Thanks for the response either way! :)
