    Battery disconnected,
    Radiator shroud out can be handy (not necessary),
    Belt off,
    Pump drain off,
    Loosen mounting bolts
    Tilt alternator and undo main power cable and small plug,
    Forward and out,
    Drop new one in via same path,
    Reverse all comments above...

    1 hr tops. Done it one several now.

    AFAIR I also removed the battery box and the belt tensioner bracket.
    I remember I had to wrestle with the vacuum pump drain pipe to get it back on.

    I replaced the alternator with the fan in place - don't ask....

    Changing a Td5 alternator without removing the fan.
    and Changing a Td5 D2 alternator with the fan in place - Mark's Stuff

    It really isn't that hard and now that I have done it a few times it only takes about an hour and a half or so even with the fan in place..

    It was split alright...

    I managed to get another one locally and spent a therapeutic few hours replacing it. It wasn't too bad really - just time consuming working out how to get it out considering the bull bar. All done now...

    I’ve had my D2 parked up for a month whilst in my spare time I work through a list of both needed and desirable tasks on the Td5. Because access is so good with the fan, radiator and inter cooler removed I decided to change the fan front cover idler bearing which had been last changed a little over 6 years ago. I decided to do this despite the the fact that it still seemed perfectly okay. As it turned out it was a good move because the bearing was haemorrhaging grease and was on the way to certain failure.

    Thanks for the advice RE the alternator. Spent some time using a tap to extend the threads on some second hand wheel nuts so they'd fit on the spare. Worked pretty well, just requires a little care to not tap them too far else the tap will push through the cap.

    If you have an old wheel nut even from a RRC, you can take the washer off and fit it to a D2 wheel nut with a bit of effort and it does the same as extending the thread.

    I picked up my D2a from the Landrover hospital yesterday.
    I took her onto the beach and then over some rocky limestone tracks to try out the transmission and the new TC cable, Perfect

    Now all I have to do is to plug up the bloody hole in the underbody that the front driveshaft made when it failed.
