Re: Ford Probe battery/alternator problems

Put a volt meter across the Terminals if you have one,the reading should be 14./14.5 running
which the alternator will put out,if your alternator is full oil its on the way out. but check
your belt tension first.have you an orange light on the dash

Re: Suspension mounts

I would have thought the top mount was ok, suspect its the spring mount under the top mount
that's the problem,if they didn't mention welding
or if it needs welding they mean top plates that I used to put on Mk1/Mk2 Escorts

Give it a good soaking in wd40 to aid release as the bolt tends to snap and the
