    Ouch, can you DIY ?

    Dealer price is £275 for the alternator, cheaper off ebay / car parts etc.
    I have also heard some have been fixed by replacing the diode pack for less than £30 but no idea how that is done.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    Hippo contact Vx customer services, there was a recall on the alternator for the CDTI 150 at least. Mine was changed under recall in May 2008 and it's a 54 plate. Whether you car falls into the same category, I don't know, but it's better to check if the recall is outstanding or not on your car first.
    Insignia VX-Line Nav CDTI 170.
