    £244.00 is very cheap for an alternator if that price is right!

    More like £500 odd or so

    £244 is definitely NOT cheap for an alternator in my book, but does seem to be the going rate. You can get them cheaper, if you look around.

    if you paid that price for it and it was for a 1.9cdti 150 it must have been a recon unit wich i have said in earlier threads will be a recon unit of the faulty vx batch around 6000 faulty units ,only faulty units are usually recond with new diods because thats only what seems to be wrong with them but there is an underlying fault that will keep blowing the diods, i had several of these lasting 1day or several months the only option vx told me was to replace with a unit out of this batch number as i did from a 07 plate with 8k on the clock for £100.. vx price for an new unit+your exchange was £464..
