    Default Alternator has died on me

    Ok so the alternator and battery died on me at the weekend, luckily quite close to home.

    Ive done some research through the forum and just wondering if i might be able to get it done under warranty ? Car is a 06b plate vectra c 1.9 cdti 150.

    Failing that the local garage has just quoted me 250 + vat for the part and 3 hrs labour which i think is a bit steep !

    Is there a how2 on here that i can go by for the 1.9 i can only find it for the 2.0T

    Any help would be great

    Cheers guys

    I have used this Ebay business in the past for alternators and starter motors and always had excellent service from them - most orders have arrived next day and they are very helpful - I have no connection with the company but they are good http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...#ht_530wt_1037
    You should get your battery and alternator checked first - its rare for both of them to go together. Changing the alternator is easy enough to do.

    Typical, my car is parked up too as the power steering pump has failed, but there is a possibility it might be the alternator thats to blame for it...Hopefully its a nice simple job buddy cause it looks like mine will be getting done in the near future..
