    i wouldn't recommend the recon jobs.
    i got mine repaired and it failed again - since buying brand new (not recon) it's fine.
    ebay has some good deals on brand new units. need to check the amp rating (105A or 120A) of the one fitted.

    Total irony to e honest, I know its a warrenty job but I phoned ahead and said my alternator is dead, They aske how I knew so explained new battry on sunday, lost power steering tuesday, plugged in battery / alternator tester that says alternator output 0.

    Drive car to them once confirmed warrenty would cover it, drive car down by the time i got there i had no steering,no ABS, no dash, no trip computer.
    saw the invoice " 1 hour diagnosis " " Diagnosis cost " "Labour1 hour " ;-) interesting
