    Had the batery light come, got the RAC guy check the car over and the altenator isnt giving any charge.

    Anyone know how much it would be to get one changed, 1.9 CDTI 120

    I don't now But i have just had a service and the main dealer replaced the alternator as a recall
    so it may be worth a phone call before buying a new one

    Hi, I had the same problem before Xmas. 1.9 CDTI 150HP. My alternator is 105Amps type from Marelli & Denso. I found a broken one from the 6 diodes and could repleaced it with a similar one from an other car. The main point is 35 Amper, the same diameter and common anode, or common cathode type. (3-3pcs on each aluminum body) Or you can buy the whole rectifier thing and voltage regulator. It would be about 80-90 pounds in my country. My alternator works fine since I fixed it. Good luck!
