    Default Alternator woes again!lol

    Set off to work this morning and half way to work my battery light comes on again!
    Get to work and check the charge rate at the back of the alternator and only charging at 11.2 volts.
    I know these cdti alternators are trouble some but surely they should last longer than 2 weeks or 500 miles?lol
    Anyway got another one under guarantee and swapped them over.
    Wonder how long this one will last?lol

    But if the alt failed two weeks ago. If it pulled the batt voltage too low the batt can't cycle back to 100% charge
