    i believe you also need to find out if it has a multiplug or not, if it has a big plug on it then its a £300-400 job, if its an older style alternator its around £100 to fix.

    Youve got the same car as me mate so should be the cheaper of the 2 alternators.Its not a hard job to do youself just a bit tricky getting it out and back in.
