Faulty Laguna Alternator

One week after the dreaded 72,000 mile service (including timing belt) engine cut out, tried to restart .....nothing except a metallic clunk! Tried the usual, jump start didn't work, rocking back and forth in gear to free a possible jammed starter solenoid no joy. Eventually bump started car but now the dash is lit up like a xmas tree. Took the car to the local car clinic and it seems the alternator is kaput. 460 quid for a new alternator from Renault, in the space of a week an 03 plate Laguna 1.9 dci has cost me the thick end of 1100 quid. I should have stuck with Vauxhall!!

Anyone else had any experience with short life alternators on Laguna's???
