Hi guys first post of my own sorry i have searched but still haven`t found a definite answer to my question.
I have got a 55 Astra 1.7 Cdti (80) estate which i am really enjoying except for my alternator going on me the other day but hey ho problems now fixed.
So a couple of questions firstly re: Alternator
After replacing alternator i went onto test mode and checked what voltage it was putting out and i have found it to be around 14.0 volts is this correct???
And secondly when i purchased the car i asked them to check and change timing belt as i have had bad experiences in the past with other cars ,and on picking the car up i was advised that it didn`t have a belt but a chain good i thought, however when the alternator was being changed the mechanic said he thought it may be a belt due to there being a plastic cover over it or something like that.
So could any of you guys clarify for me belt or chain????
