  1. Hi guys, Can anyone help please. My 2.7 beauty is lying in my pals garage. Cable connection behind driver front wheel arch that supplies starter and alternator has snapped at entry to connector block. Can anyone tell me where to get a replacement? Just found pic. It’s the positive cable from battery to front bulkhead power stud. Break is just where cable enters power stud

    That’s great. Thanks Joe. Was getting quoted for full wiring loom. £2500. Or there about. Will get onto that tomorrow. Thanks again😃

    S Type 2.7 Diesel alternator change

    Thanks Pete, am the same, can’t lie under cars anymore. Seems a bit strange removing part of subframe though. I would have thought going in from top was a better idea. Never done it so, what do I know. 🤔

    S Type 2.7 Diesel alternator change

    Hi. I have had to put my beauty into a garage for the work, and they have told me they have had to take sub frame off to get at alternator. Is this accurate? Seems a bit excessive.

  7. I drove home tonight in my 57 plate 2.7 diesel s type. Headlights went out then straight back on again. Did it 3 times in 3 mins. Any ideas anybody?

    Thanks for reply Raistlin. Will give it a try in the morning. Bit scary driving in country at night and the lights go out. Will be doing a 100 mile run tomorrow. So hopefully will be able to fix. Cheers.
