Title: Have I got the wrong alternator backing plate?
Post by: Buggybaggy on August 02, 2020, 08:23:02 PM
So guys, I've got a new backing plate for my alternator which has a hole in it. My old one does not hsve yhe hole. Have I ordered the wrong part?
The hole I'm referring to is the one at 12 o'clock.
Thanks

My VW original has that hole. Stick a grommet in it

That could be it Paul. Will have a look see when the rain stops although a grommet has done the job for many years  :D

That sounds more than plausible. Thanks.
