    Default alternator recall?

    Just a quick question if anyone can help me please , my vectra cdti has an outstanding recall on it for the alternator but the service department won't tell me what the problem is, all i get is "they need the car for a day" and they not giving a courtesy car,
    Does anybody who has had the job done know what the fault is or what the fix is?
    thanks for any answers

    Mine is booked in on the 23rd mate, I can let you know after if you want. All the said to me was that they need the car for the day to check the plate on it, and if they need to change it they will book it in.

    Hi,my Vectra is also going in for the recall on the alernator and the guys in the workshop who i know well tell me its to do with the diode inside the alternator blowing causing the car to stop charging. It might never happen but they have had some failures with certain batches of alternators. So they check the sticker on the alternator to see which batch it is. Apparently £400 if you had to pay for it !!!

    if you get a chance can you ask them what to look for on the sticker as id rather take a look myself than have to have a day off work just for someone to tell me that my alternator is ok
    thanks

    OK update FYI on the recall I have the official Vx document in front of me.. Its to do with it NOT charging the battery due to a blown diode.

    Scope: Astra H, Vectra-C, Signum MY 2004-2005

    Model - Plant - From - To

    Vectra C/Signum - Russelsheim 41080136 - 51000100
    Vectra C - Ellesmere Port 48066725 - 48110149


    Only vehicles equipped with a Denso Alternator (105A/120A/130A) and 1.9Diesel engine listed in the VIN info have to be reworked.

    All vehicles reworked have to be cleary marked by a blue paint dot on the coolant expansion tank
