Called a few auto factors to find that no one can get hold of them but they had a recon unit for £119. So I stripped the alternator out of its case and cleaned it up esp. the rings. Then I cleaned the brushes and managed to get them out a bit further. Put the alternator together, refitted it and so far so good. Had a few small journeys with all the electrics running and no fault light yet.

I had an issue with the alternator light coming on on my 2003 clio 172.
I disconnected the battery and undone the battery connector from the alternator.
I then cleaned the connector (from the batter to the alternator) on the alternator side as this was rusty.
Popped some Vaseline on and tightened up, this has stopped the light appearing for over a year now.
Renault wanted to change for a new alternator.
