After suffering 3 alternator failures in as many years,we found the culprit to be a very slow oil drip from the valve cover.Having repaired,it appears there are brackets to hold a cover(no longer there)that prevents oil from dripping on the alternator. I have looked in the owner's manual to no avail,but wonder if others have run into this issue,and how they have managed a cure. If you have repaired an alternator previously,you know the wheel,inner panel,gas tank,etc. all must be removed as part of the fix,so it is quite important to get it right the first time!!! Is the cover(if it really exists)available? If not,could I make one? Any drawings available? Any help much appreciated!!! Thank you.
