    Default V6 cdti Alternator [be warned]

    Just got my 3.0 cdti back after 3 weeks,waiting for alternator to come from Germany.New alternator,belt tensioners,belts all in a cool £744.00.And thats after a 60% contribution from Vauxhall,I'm having the bill framed £1860.00 before vauxhall's 60%.I nearly fell off my chair when i saw the total amount.Just bought a warranty policy,just in case of any further big bill problems.


    p.s It's not a 2 bolts and a bracket job.O/s/f suspension off,engine mounts to allow motor to be dropped enough to get to it,saw the old alternator,never seen anything like it ! + Belt tensioner £200 alone.

    Isn't it relevant only to the 1.9 though (the recall)?

    I'm not sure! Is it for Denso alternators and 1.9 diesels or Denso alternators on 1.9 diesels?

    I read it as it Denso alternators on 1.9 diesels - maybe somebody can confirm for sure.

    Me thinks the 3.0 V6 is a bit too pricey when it goes wrong .
    Think mine will definatly have to go when the warranty is up
