    My dad and my sister had to change there alternators because they just stopped charging. First the battery light comes on and within minutes the power steering pump drains the battery and everything dies. Dad had a refurbed alternator, worked a treat. I tried a second hand one off of the internet for cheap but same problem. Few other people have had the same problem on here. Seems pretty common TBH? We tried a few other things but the only easy way was to replace for new, sorry?

    Which engine have you got?

    Can see alternators on ebay for round the 100 quid mark.
