re cost of new alternator
ok i have had the alternator changed at my local garage and they have changed £260 cash no vat is kinda seems a lot when i can see alternators on ebay for £80. have i been done ??
What model and engine do you have? What make was fitted and is it brand new or a recon unit. A lucas unit for my 1.6hdi would be about 150 quid and a bosch is loads more. There is loads of cheap rubbish out there.
Are we there yet????? No we fecking ain`t  gggggrrrrrrr
Ex 1.6hdi van now 3 seater 1.4 multispace
its a 2.0hdi 2003[/u] they said the fitted a quality unit but it failed after it was fitted and needed to go back and be changed. they said another customer had the same problem so it seems unlikly to be a bosch

it was brand new
On euro parts for your engine they vary from 116 quid to 226 quid.

..having justg replaced the alternator on a friends 2005 2.0HDi I was staggered how expensive some of alternators for this motor are. Citroen wanted over £300 for the 150amp alternator she has fitted - managed to get it and the belt for £157 from Ebay in the end.
mine was a 1.9d it cost me £102 +vat for the alternator and about £10 for the belt i got it from Andrew Page motor factors it was a new unit not a recond one as well
Mine for my 1.6 petrol was I think £80 and £60 to fit and £10 for a new belt - thereabouts, so £150 all in.

£260 sounds high if it's not a known brand!
