    Default 105A or 140A alternator?

    About my post last night - I have figured I need an alternator.

    I have seen a few on ebay, but wondering what will have been fitted on my car as standard? - its a 2004 1.9 CDTi 150 SRi.

    Seen alternators for 105 or 130/140 amps.

    I do have a sub in the boot, so if the car will take it then I may try and go for a 130/140a alternator?

    Thanks!

    Well - as im having to sort this out tonight, iv just popped out from work to the local CES car parts.

    Paid £140 (after £70 surcharge) for a DriveTec 105a re-manufactured unit.
    The box looks very "ASDA Smartprice" but it should do the job - came with a years warranty so we will see what happens.

    Fitting after work tonight - will let you know how things go!

    You bumped a post that's 16 months old to ask that? Unlikely he'll respond as his profile shows he was last online in March 2012...

    Larger is better. You could need more power (along with a larger battery) if you decide one day to upgrade your audio setup. Just Choose the model matching your car, as there are different shapes.

    Should be a 100A
    However, as above, if you intend to add further electrical items then consider 140A
