Did you replace with a Bosch 150 amp? I found that my 150 amp Bosch replacement needed more juggling around than the 90 amp OEM to R&R, but after it was up in place the 150 amp bolted right in.

There are no shim kits or other adapting which I have heard about related to Bosch alternators. Good luck. vic
