Hello all

Past couple of days the warning "Alternator workshop" appears and sometimes the battery light too.

Ignition on Battery tester shows 12v and engine on shows 14.5v

Also did a stress test with ac on, lights, hazards and radio, I did notice smoke from the Alternator after engine switched off but still shows fine on voltage test.

The belt tensioner bobs about a bit while engine is running but nothing too unusual.

Suggestions and assistance required please 馃檹

Many thanks

拢30-拢40 buys you a new regulator if on a budget. The alternator body on mine is at 168K and brushes and bearings are worn but ok.
