Good cheap alternators.


Recommended Posts

Hi I recently had to replace the alternator on my 300 Tdi Disco (Magneti Marelli A1271). The old one had packed in and I was quoted a price of aprox £160 for a rebuilt unit. (replacement parts were not available)

I did a bit of research on the internet, and found that a decent replacement was made by Unipoint, The best price I got was £85 including delivery. From Alternator Mart, a very friendly place somewhere in Lancashire. It arrive neatly packed the next day.

Only slight inconvenience was that the unit was fitted with a 6 groove pully not 7 groove. Fortunately the pulleys were easy enough to swap over.

Just thought I would pass on this info to anyone who may be looking for a new alternator.
