Replace alternator

Hi,
I have a 95 NAS defender and I think the alternator is dead. (The car starts with a jump, but starts running rough after a couple of minutes and dies. The battery light is on when it is running. The voltage across the battery is the same ~12 volts whether the engine is on or off. Haven't checked the computer yet.)

I'd like to pull the alternator so I can have it tested but I'm not sure what the kosher way to get the belt off is (yeah, noob question). Any advice re: the belt replacement or alternators replacement/diagnosis in general would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Alex

Buy a magnito mirelli brand alternator. The cheapo remans even bosch brand are crap. Some people have had good luck with Mean Green brand.

The belt has a tensioner you can loosen in a very obvious way.

Thanks for the brand advice.

Nothing is too obvious for me. I'll go back and look under the hood again.

Yeah. The tensioner for the alternate is obvious. Like really obvious. Ha.

I pulled the alternator and had it tested at carquest and they said it was shot.

Can anyone recommend a good place to buy a Marelli alternator for a 95 NAS defender online?

cheers
