    Where for best alternator price?

    My alternator has died so I need to source a replacement (for a 1999 Astra G). Can anyone recommend somewhere that sells recon alternators for good prices? Best prices I can find are all around £80 to £100 which seems quite expensive! Thanks.

    I guess I'm after a recon unit which are usually cheaper (maybe part exchange the broken one). This used to be common practice years ago, but I'm struggling to find anywhere now.

    I'd rather get a recon one. At least that way you know what you're getting.

    To be honest...a breakers is a good shout ...
    Normally if they're faulty when you put it on your car, they'll replace it...
