VW TDI 2.5 DIESEL ALTERNATOR FAILURE
We have had feed back on the above vehicle having early alternator failure shortly after fitting the unit, this along with the rubber coupling and clutch pulley gear seizing. This is due to incorrect fitment of the unit. It is vital that the bottom bracket is aligned and tightened before the top brackets. If the top bracket is tightened first this will result in the alternator sitting off set which will cause the alternator to fail. Part numbers that are affected are: KS1579RA and KS1580RA.
