    I have an 06 facelift sri 150 nav vxl put my reg in and told me its the 100amp fitted which it was , other option is take the unit off and have a look at the stamp you wont see it unless you remove it , i`m pretty sure yours will be the same they do a 100 120 and 130 amp unit and thankfully the 100 is a lot cheaper than the others

    A genuine new vx alternator cost me £600 plus VAT - thats just for the part, not fitting too. Think mine was the 120A one? 2008 Sri Hatch 1.9CDTi [150].

    A common problem - vx covered 70% of the cost as I was only 5 weeks out of warranty.

    Classic symptoms of failed alternator. Happened to me. Got aftermarket one of fleaBay for about £100 been fine since although I've heard of others who've experienced problems with non-VX one.
