"Charging System Failure' V70-XC70 2008

2008 V70, 110,000 miles.

Wife called that she had a message like "Charging System Failure" etc.

First reaction was to replace old battery, which I did. Then this happened.

I'm thinking alternator so look online (youtube) to find alternator replacement how-to as it's under the intake manifold and driven by a toothed coupler.

The only video I found was of a 2007 XC70. It showed that the bolt holding the engine-side toothed drive sprocket was loose and the sprocket just spun. He locktited it and all's well.

I'm going to try and spin the alternator with a screwdriver or skewer between the intake runners and see if it's free to spin w/o the engine driving it.

Any other suggestions or caveats? Wife is now driving mom's '04 Town Car or son's '01 Jeep XJ Cherokee (which she likes!)

Thanks,

Erwin
