    Well on the 1.7CDTI its a case of front grill and bump off, inner wheel arch removed, drop the horn out of the way and then a little bit of manipulation to get it out of the tight hole. As for the 1.9 I can't advise, but that does remind me, I've got to take mine out again as the pump is weeping.

    Thanks to everyone on this site you have given me top!!! information.....
    If anyone has to remove the alternator on a 1.9 cdti then it will come out through the top it would appear from my experience you have to remove the fuel filter metal housing then remove the filter from it, Note you only have to remove the electrical connections. With the filter moved out of the way you remove the engine mounting fixings on the chassis and move the engine forward (at the alternator end) this will allow the alternator to pass by the oil cooler then up through the hole created by moving the fuel filter. I hope this helps someone in the future.
