  1. Alternator belt tip for replacement.

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    My alternator went south and I needed to replace it on my 08 Sport 4.2 supercharged Rover. Not hard to do but ran into an issue when I decided to replace the belt. The fan/hub needs to be removed in order to change the belt, just plain dumb. In my case I could not for the life of me get the fan...
  2. compatible high output alternator

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I know it's highly not recommended, but after 2 years of electrical issues, 2 to 3 alternators, 7 to 8 batteries I don't care anymore - are there any high output alternators (200 amps or higher) that are compatible or requires little to some modification to get to fit in a 2010 supercharged model?

  4. 2005 HSE Throwing Faults - Alternator?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I've been having an issue for a couple of years where I'm getting faults. Most of the time, it's Air Suspension Inactive, and the fault code points to the right front sensor. I had that changed at the local dealer (at least I think I did; forgot to ask them for the old parts), but still get the...
  5. 2006 SC - 3rd Alternator?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I bought this truck with around 80k miles on it, in great shape, new battery. Drove fine for a long time, up over 120k miles somewhere I started to get some failing parts, nothing unusual in my opinion. Alternator stopped charging the battery, low voltage with meter and IIDTool. Replaced it...
  6. 94 won’t start after alternator replacement

    Range Rover Classic
    1994 4.2 began showing signs of the alternator dying, so I ordered a unit from British Parts of Utah. Prior to the replacement, the truck would start every time and there was no odd behavior besides the battery light coming on when idling. I put the battery on the charger and went about...
  7. 91 RRC - Alternator Belt keeps coming loose

    Range Rover Classic
    When we first took delivery, I drove this vehicle about 25 miles to home with no issues. When we started it about two hours later the alt belt made a horrid squeal as it was now loose. After about a block it got quiet however within a few miles the belt broke. I replaced the belt with an...

  9. Neighbor shorted my Alternator while jumping another car

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    They borrowed the 2004 HSE to go and get the kid, but said they had another vehicle for jumping - my last words were - "Don't use the Rover for jumping" Voila, alternator fried as they probably crossed the streamers as the kid is not all there. I replaced the alternator, but seems the...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi, Red Battery Light Symbol is showing on my dash. Battery is draining, and I could smell something under hood that I associate with burning electronics smell. I assumed this was a bad alternator after reading multiple posts on this forum. I removed the alternator and took it to autozone...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello, I think the alternator has failed on the families Rover. It had been whining a little for a few weeks and when driving it seemed as if the battery died and it starting freaking out. I made a video of the whine and the issues when it started dying. Quite sure it is the alternator not...

  18. Alternator bad?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Firstly, sticky has been (mostly) done and results are below. My questions are twofold: (i) will a brand new battery and a non-functioning alternator be likely to get me home (about an hour’s drive, a bit over that in traffic, lights won’t be in use) or will trying this be likely to drain the...
