Leaving for work - should be there by 9.30 - with alternator in boot of course!!

Can arrange pickup via DHL or other courier - I work opposite main Department stores so couriers are in and out all day

How do you want to make payment - BT or PP?

I'll pay by paypal if that's ok.

Cheers.

It does lokk very similar from that photo.

The photo + the two matching numbers from the link make it as near
exact as I could say at this stage.

Awaiting confirmation from DHL regards pick up time.

Paypal payment went through aok.

Cheers

Alternator arrived and was fitted soon after.....everything AOK......

Thanks very much again Brian, much appreciated.

Just to let everyone know I work for Ford's in Bridgend which makes the Volvo inline 6 cylinder engine (amongst others) and we buy the alternators for it from Bosch, the 150 amp alternator costs us 56. The Volvo main dealer wanted 392.50 for a refurb unit with mine in exchange....makes you sick doesn't it.

Andrew.

Glad too hear the unit was the right one for you

I appreciate that the dealers have a business to run but, at that level of markup,
someone in the chain is taking the motorist to levels even Dick Turpin would have baulked at !!
