Sorry it's in the wromg place guys, for some reason I can't post in wanted.

I'm after an alternator for the above, or more accurately the brush / voltage regulator assembly as the brushes in mine are quite worn and I'm being told they are not available as a seperate item and I cant afford £120 for a recon unit. Anyone able to help?

Hi Chris - have you tried an auto-electrician - my local guy was able to repair one for a Clio diesel for £45 - so bits must be available some how - as far as I know many of the components in alternators are inter-changeable - it's just knowing what parts to use. Mat eof mine was able to get brushes which where too big and made them fit with the use of a big file and a lot of patience.:)

You used to be able to buy separate carbon brushes from a vacuum spares shop and just file to suit as they came in a great many different sizes.

Regards
