Hi, I'm wondering if it is possible to split the motor from the reduction gear on a 2012 kangoo ze
I would also like to know why my 2012 kangoo ze won't charge from a petrol generator and granny lead?

What size is the generator and is it a pure sine wave one?

It’s a 3000w petrol genny but not the inverter generator type so probably not pure sine wave.
I wondered if it was because the car charger couldn’t see a proper Earth other than the metal body of the generator

Probably because your generator doesn’t have a proper Earth.

The Renault system is fairly picky about this.

Thanks, would an Earth rod driven in to the ground and connected to the genny earth work?
