after swapping my alternator out tonight, I find a mysterious :confused: pin under my car. Shiny steel pin 1/4" diameter, 1 1/2" long.
Anyone know what it's for? I did have to unbolt my A/C compressor, and remove the passenger side fan to get it out, so could it have come from any of these?
2nd gen V6 stocker. Looked at exploded views of compressor and alternator to no avail.

Thanks,

B

Huh?

I have fitted/removed alt about 6 times - never seen anything like that...

Not possibly something that was just lying there before you started?

i recently swapped my alternator out and I also had to unbolt the AC unit, which is only 4 big flange bolts, and the alternator itself has 2 bolts (not counting the bracket). haven't seen anything like that either

Thanks...

Maybe it was from some other time, and happened to be sitting on top of my A/C compressor.

Cheers,
