    Default How much have you paid for an alternator?

    Just wondered if any of you have had to change an alternator on a cdti yet and if so how much did one cost?
    Mine has decided to pack in on me yesterday and I've had a look round my usual places on the net and a genuine bosch part is over 400 quid? Surely there must be somewhere that does them cheaper than that or should I just go and get my original re-con'd?

    Hi,
    I got mine from here :

    http://www.bexleystarters.co.uk/cms/home

    they do a replacement service.

    cost me £130.

    i paid a garage 70 to fit but would now do it myself having seen how easy it is..

    Better the 500 vauxhall wanted...

    £99.99 for a brand new (not reconditioned) Denso alternator on Ebay. Very fast delivery, fitted and working with no problems

    When the wife's Golf alternator packed in I went to Euro carparts and got one for £165 it was OEM quality and was a lot less than the £335 VW wanted.
