Hello,

This is my first time posting to the board. I just bough a 92 Hiace 2.8l Diesel camper van, and in the process of driving it home 2200km the alternator seems to have quit and was running purely off the batteries.

Does this sound familiar? Could it be a fuse or connection? If I am right in assuming alternator is shot how do I get it out, pull the drivers seat?

I think I could get it rebuilt but any advice on where to source parts for RHD Japanese import in Canada would be appreciated as well. I have found a few places on line and am following up but was asked for serial numbers.

Where do I find the serial numbers on the RHD??

Thanks, any ideas would be appreciated. I sold my beloved 2000 Tacoma to buy this awesome 4x4 diesel van, however now feeling a bit fusterated by the alternator problem.

Alternator under drivers seat. remove seat and then the floor pan to get to it.

Most like just the diodes gone so worth getting it checked out first. Diodes are easy to obtain and are not Toyota specific.

Serial number on the alternator, or do you mean the VIN?

Have a look at Toyodiy.com for info on your vehicle.

Well thank you. Is the diode on the alternator or located in a cluster somewhere?

I know it's a long shoot but "Merlin_" What was the trouble, diodes, bad connector? I just had the same yesterday.

If you search for "alternator rectifier toyota" on ebay a whole load of replacements turn up, so it may be worth taking yours off, matching them up and buying a new one anyway.

I guess you can check with a multimeter too but you have to know the rough circuit, so it may just be cheaper to change them out.
IIRC alternators also have brush packs that can also wear and are even cheaper.

Yes you can take out the brushes seperately, and see if they are worn.

I usually take it out, and bring it to a company that refurbishes altnernators / starter motors etc
The bill can be low or high, depending on what needed to be fixed.
But there is stuff you can do yourself.
