Thanks...yes, I have a Series 1 and you either remove the whole SC or the alternator bracket for the SC work. I can't ask him why he'* doing what he'* doing right now...
At first he thought the coupler was in good shape, but after looking at the holes, they aren't exactly round (and I read that somewhere on this site), they are more oval in shape. But here'* a question for you experts....the coupler is plastic, right? But is it a very, very hard plastic? The one we took off my car was very, very hard and we were wondering if this is normal or a result of no oil or bad oil...etc. My new coupler is on it'* way to my house today. If you don't mind, I will report progress and/or ask for help. Thank you.
