The 3.2 is a very reliable engine

And it is shared by Volvo and Land Rover.

Here is a Land Rover forum post that shows the bolt that can become loose

https://www.aulro.com/afvb/freelander-2 ... owner.html

This post from a different Land Rover board shows how to take off the manifold an expose the Alternator


While you are in there you should replace the Thermostat, small coolant hose and O-ring

This post has the part number for OAP (Overdrive Alternator Pulley) and a picture of the special tool need to replace it


Let me know if this answers your questions
