Hi All It has been some time since my last post. About 12 months ago my 200tdi snapped an alternator belt. I thought well its because I don't use the old girl enough and said belt probably came with a dreaded "blue logo"on the packaging. So I replaced with a Dayco belt and all was OK. Yesterday after less than 1000 miles driven (I know its a shameful waste) since last year the belt snapped again. Fitted as per the book with correct difflection etc. I wondered if the alternator is on the blink and seizes intermittently, this could be borne out by my twin charge monitor just showing a single led charge rate at below the one seen previously since fitting. I have been toying with an alternator upgrade to give the two battery setup more umph perhaps this is the time. Qustion is do all standard defender 200tdi have one alternator model or a range of units like the confusing power steering variants fitted? Also has anyone else had a 200tdi with a taste for belts? Cheers All n good to be back J2J PS. I was thinking about one of these but ditching the belt that comes with it in the photo for the obvious reasons http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Defender-200Tdi-120a-Alternator-Upgrade-DA1195-/181627329539?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item2a49d51c03
