    Alternator

    Nice and quiet on here nowadays!
    My alternator just packed up in Austria, at the bottom of the mountain, on the way home to the UK. Nice Austrian mechanic said the ball bearings had failed. Interestingly we had a funnyish noise on the way out but it stopped after a break on the way. I wonder if the fact we have not been using the car daily over the previous 6 months or so had an impact.
    This is at 103k or so miles and first major(ish) breakdown so far so I can't complain. The real problem is that Green Flag threaten to refuse to truck it back if it is 'uneconomic'. We all know that our BLSs are pretty much worthless, despite their undeniable rarity value, so fingers crossed they don't try this on.
    Does anyone have a feel for likely cost to get the alternator replaced? My garage has a tendency to find the most expensive parts and by my quick look you could pay £400+ just for the parts if you want to. If anyone can point me in the correct direction for the right part at a good price I would be most grateful.
    I saw my first BLS Estate on the road in Cornwall in the summer. Identical colour. Very exciting although slightly sad the other owner was totally uninterested in engaging in any BLS brotherhood chat.

    Re: Alternator

    Hi,
    sorry for the late answer.
    In Germany I will get an alternator for my 2.0 wagon as a 120 A for round about 150 Euro.
    Than the work from the shop and done.
    Should be done at any shop, because the part numbers match some for Saab, Opel or GM.

    Good luck, probably you are already back on the road.

    Best regards
    BlackBox
