    Is it a case of just removing it all or is it more involved than that?
    If more involved what parts are required?
    Cheers

    Aux-belt needs a different setup. Try the search bar on the top right corner.

    Why remove it? Does it work properly? If this warm weather continues you will regret taking it out. I use mine all the time including track use.

    It's going to be a track car. I'm told if you get it all out it totals about 25kg's?

    To be honest I'd leave it in. Mine gets track use as well. It doesn't slow it down thats for sure.You're not racing in a championship, its only a trackday.If its a stinking hot day then you'll be wishing you had aircon. and it stops it misting up on a wet day so think about that as well. I leave the aircon running on track. It's never slowed me down!

    I hear what you're saying Mark but I'm still going to delete it ta.
    Could it be as simple a putting in the brackets from a cup?

    Pure Motorsport website has a full how to removal guide mate.

    Laguna 1.8 8V bracket is the same as a Cup. Got mine for a tenner from the local breakers lol

    Genuine Cup alternator and belt and all can be done for not much over a 100
