    Default How ****** much!

    Just had to fork out £190 for an alternator and god knows how mucj the garage are going to charge fit it. I would normally do such jobs myself but I hurt my back lifting earlier this week so the chances of being bent over for 2 hours are a big no no. Im starting to wish I'd never sold my impreza from what I have saved in fuel I have to spend on repairs.

    Thats my weekend moan over with.

    When mine went i was told there were about 5 different types/ sizes. Guess what mine was the most expensive one + fitting. It cost me about £250 all in i think

    Cheaper to aquire one yourself and ask them to fit it in. Providing u know which is which... I bet they said urs most expensive but really is the standard common ones!!! Check urself the alternator they get and fit is actually the price u paid!!!

    All well and good saying that but just think. Car un-drivable, days off work to find, wait for delivery and fit. Or drop it off at the garage near where it broke down and pick it up after work costing me £250 instead of maybe over £400. No brainer to me.

    I was led to beleive that the diesels had higher current rated alternators with the elite's higher still, due to all the electrical toys. Wonder if this is true. Think the one they fitted to my 1.9 was a 120A if i remember correctly.

    That's what I thought but when I spoke to the guy at the factors he said most have the 105 amp denso but he also said they max upto 150amp, 100 amp nominal, with mine having heated seats i was sure it would be the bosch but it was a denso, he also said they were not compatible if wrong one fitted it would throw a wobbler!
