    Default Alternator gone!

    Well it appears my alternator packed up yesterday. Battery line came on so I took it to my mates garage who confirmed that no charge was going to the battery while the cat was running

    Whipped it off last night and getting it looked at today to hopefully be repaired. Been suggested it could be the brushes. Easy fix!

    Lets hope!

    think its normally the rectifier pack that goes down on them, i brought a new one from euro car parts for £135 with 25% off discount code at xmas, fitted it myself and sold the old one for £20.
