    Default Broken alternaotr

    Car is Signum 1.9 cdti Design, had the seats, wipers, headlights, radio and battery light come. Out comes meter and shes charging at 11.6 and idling at 1100 rpm so i think alternator goosed. Can just about see the back of it and says its a denso type but no idea on amphour, anyone know which its likely to be? 100ah, 105ah, 120ah, 140ah? Has anyone fitted a remanufactured one? Seen one on ebay but im very cautious!

    Does anyone know if they all mount in the same way as ive added a small amount of electrical items since the car was made and i guess could do with a better alternator, was wondering if i could just get a large capacity one?

    i dont know how they could, at least with the ones from vauxhall, as they all use the same ecu (the 1.9 for example) as i said trade club has 3 listed for your car mate.

    ring vauxhall and find out, but then again the only info they will give you is on there own alternators.

    hope someone else can confirm and help you more then i can.
