there's a cover bolt with a nut on it under the alternator.
I removed the fan, and the cowling. I also sawed the cowling in half
vertically, so it can now be removed without removing the fan first. It
goes back on OK like this. Fecking silly design, so it is - there's not
quite scope for getting the cowling out without removing the fan.
