Smokin Hot Alternator


Hi guys, Im in the early stages of getting my 74 bay back up n running, over the weekend while I was stripping the interior, my buddy hooked up the battery backwards allowing "the smoke to escape from the alternator". Any ideas what has been burnt and do I need to remove the alternator to replace diodes etc or can I do this insitu.

is it an alternator?

Type 1 motor or type 4?

My guess is the internal regulator is stuffed on an alternator and will need to be removed to be repaired

Diodes are probably toast. You will have to remove the alternator and strip it down.



I read it on samba, so it must be correct.

Sometimes Volkswagen dealers sell spare parts. Amazing isn't it!:lol:
