I have a second hand one here, it's charging fine if I remember correctly, but was only activating the mivec intermittently. You might be able to make one good one from the two. Just swap over your own diode pack?

Thanks but im unsure if the one from mine would fit as I know its not the original for this car as it doesn't line up great without spacing out.wouldn't know where to start taking alternators apart either.really hate car electronics lol.thanks though
