Hi All


Looking for some advice.


It would appear my MK5 Cabbie needs a new alternator but I'm not 100% sure which connection type is required or which AMP type to get. I presume 55Amp but I'm faced with 'Plug' or 'M6' connector type.

Any ideas?

Id go for the highest amp they do but I would check your old one for the right connection.

no harm in fitting a higher amp one, youd have to look to see what connection you have already,
