I'm trying to remove the alternator pully.
I have the seeley sx400 kit.
The T50 torxbit is too small and the M10 bit won't go in.
Have I got the wrong kit ?

Probably, I think the right tool is quite "special" My nearest auto-electric shop did not have it. But with so many alternator clutch failures, there are many people in here with precise knowledge and even the right tool.

Reading other posts on this, the sx400 is correct.
I'll try and take a picture or use a mirror to count the splines tomorrow.
Car has done over 200K km so Could have a non OE pully and bolt ?

I managed to take a photo in situ.
It was clear that it was M10.
"Was" being the operative word, it looks to have been bodged in the past.
I have removed alternator and done some more bodging but despite heaving on a 2 foot breaker bar it's not moving. Pretty sure it's not left hand thread.
Think I'll just get a new alternator, no idea if this one works.
Yes I bought a non charging C6...
It was very cheap
