    Default Alternator

    Morning & Merry Christmas peeps!

    Coming home last night had the battery/alternator light come on. Wasn't sure what it was at the time (apart from not being good!) so turned everything off that wasn't needed and made my way home fine (about 10 miles).
    Looking through threads it seems like the alternator has gone which is a big fat pain in the a?? at this time of year.

    Local dealer will do it for £399 but will only tell me its the 100amp alternator, not give give me the part number so i can't check with part suppliers as they all want a part number. Could any kind soul tell me the part number? I can provide reg if needed.

    Or just bite the bullet, wait till january , and get one off fleabay;

    Item number:220530221726 (if the linky doesn't work properly).

    Cheers

    there's a breaker's near me in London called Brantwood's (www.brantwood.co.uk) and they told me they have Vectra alternators for just £80 I'm sure they can ship it... If not, it's a good run for the car, should charge the battery
