Alterntor rebuilds

Post by womble3go »

Hello All,

Just wondering if any one has got their alternator rebuild if so, were did you use, I am guessing that I will have to post.

Mine has just died and my spares are not spares just paper weights. :D

Kevin.

This is where I took mine, did a good job. To be honest, I'd have just replaced it (financially no worse off) but I wanted to keep the OEM unit due to the low mileage.

Agreed. He's oldschool. Comes across a bit off too, but he's not.

Yes, this! I really like him and it turns out he is a friend of a friend but he can seem like this on phone. However, if you want the best alternator rebuild going, you want this guy.
