    Default which alternator? urgent help required.

    hi bit confussed my alternator has died on my 1.9cdti 150 z19dth, it has heated front seats and AFL, local stealers tell me it has a 105A on in it, not sure about that though as it seems small for all the electrics it has, can't take it off right now either as it is stuck at work. any one got any ideas? can't even see how many wires it has. some pretty reasonable ones on ebay at the mo at 130A.

    cheers

    Mine had the 105 amp. Changed it for a 120 amp when it failed at 125k miles

    where did you source that from? mine has two wires just managed to get a good look at it, is a Denso one which seem to be a bit suspect although the car has got 106k on the clock!

    Got mine from Euro Car Parts. £196 brand new (not exchange or refurb). Didn't see how many wires it had as I was at work and my mate fitted it for me when I was out. It is a Denso one. The original one lasted 125k miles

    sorry realised that didn't quite make sense.

    Hi all does any one else know how many terminals the 120A ones have? as most that i have seen have three connections, but i have heard that you can not use one the extra terminla and make it work as the 105A cars only have two connections, can any one else confirm this?

    thanks
