My Alternator has decided to give up on me!
I just wanted to check if anyone knows if this is the correct replacement for my car?
its a 1998 1275cc Mayfair SPI

Had a chance to look at it over the weekend and it seams that the belt has just stretched so its slipping.
Have you ever had to replace the same belt on your 35th anniversary cooper? which belt would it be?

If it's a JDM car it'll likely be distributorless and have the multi groove pulley - my 1998 Cooper certainly is. They're a mongrel of an MPi engine with SPi throttle body / radiator etc. and can be a bit of a nightmare choosing the correct bits!

I knew it was dizzy less and SPI but didn't realise it had the MPI belt setup too.

For information, the poly-v belt needed for the air-con / alternator is a 5PK1010ES (Minispares are as cheap as anywhere if not cheaper), useful to know if you get caught out.

What are these later cars (mine happens to be a UK 94 Spi so no AC) alt supposed to be putting out? With my wipers, blower motor, and lights on, it seems mine can't really keep up. With the lights and interior fan on, when the wipers go (I installed intermittent wipers) I can hear the fan motor dip.
