    Hi Guys

    My megged clio battery light comes on usually after 10 mins of driving and I am led to believe it is due to the megane alternator being used and the pulley is a different size so charges quicker?

    Is the 197 alternator a straight forward swap?

    You need to swap the whole auxiliary setup over, air con the lot then it fits fine

    ha I might live with the battery light until the garage warms up in the new year!

    Doesn't affect it in anyway so not overly bothered, but I'd like to sort it
