Hi, Started recently on the forum when looking for a T2, and we are now the proud owners of a 2008 registered Aircooled Bazilian Tin Top !

Needs a few bits and bobs sorting out, will keep me busy. Drives well, looking forward to our first weekend away, and meeting up with fellow owners, as soon as I get the new alternator in........

Forum has been tremendous help, many thanks to all !

Now you've got your BraziBay you're upgraded to 'Club!' Good times.

What's wrong with the alternator?

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new addition.

If your alternator is working and your free next weekend come along to the sleepover, there'll be loads of other brazzie bays there to have a nose at.

Thanks for the replies !

2008 registered, but year of manufacture 2002 according to VIN....very low mileage though. Will post some pictures shortly.

Realised it was over charging on test drive, quick check revealed 18+ volts. Disconnected alternator to prevent cooking the ECU, did the deal and drove it home (Had a spare battery with me just in case). New alternator arrived yesterday, (thanks VWHeritage !) I've gone for a 70amp one as leisure battery fitted, also it has a regulator you can change without removing the alternator, 'cos as I'm sure you all know it isn't the easiest job......

Will keep you posted. All the best, and appreciate being made to feel so welcome !
