In the middle of nowhere and without a mobile signal I had to leave the family and walk several miles to get a signal. To cut a long story short, we had to be trucked back to our holiday home and the next day paid 300 to have the car trucked back home as the local dealer diagnosed a knackered alternator and a delivery time of at least 4 weeks. The alternator is a type which also has a vacuum pump on it, apparently, hence the black hoses on the top. This meant a quote 0f 700 from my local Renault dealer. Eventually I went to a local independent garage who were able to do it for 460.
