    Without doing the obvious and taking it off how can I find out what alternator has been fitted to my sisters car, are there any websites that I could use?

    There are several alternators that will fit BUT the battery warning light may stay on, i found this out when
    i replaced my valeo alternator, in the end i found a company that had the knowledge they replaced the brushes
    in the old unit after being told that it could not be repaired by two other companies. cost me £25 and took them
    ten minutes ( money well spent ) just make sure the the part numbers match to avoid a headache.
    HTH
    PS, A inspection mirror on a rod may help.
