Hello people..! Today was somewhat lucky. I was setting out on a 30 mile round trip to pick up Bilt Hamber rust treatments... and then this happened. About 2/3 miles from home, I get a never seen before, red light warning on centre screen showing a batter with +/- terminals in all red. Shortly followed by all various lights coming up, loss of Comand, power steering etc. Turn off car to refuel and engine slow to turn, but did finally start. Believe it or not, I actually had a multimeter in the car. I can't remember the exact values when off and started but not good. After some to/from with the breakdown people, I ended up being able to start the engine fine and everything seemed "normal", so I managed to get home. Plugged in my trust iCarsoft scanner and get this code in the engine control module: Code "0365" "The output for the actuation of the alternator has a malfunction" There were also a number of other codes relating to various control modules shutting down due to lack of power. So... My alternator is basically goosed. I saw a video from "LegiStreetCars" (Alex) on Youtube a while ago about replacing worn bushes, which doesn't look too bad.. I think over the coming few days I will try and get the alternator out and inspect the bushes (and the spindle part) with a view to refurbing. Any ideas where is good to order these parts? Either the voltage regulator or just the bushes themselves, I am happy to cut out the old ones and solder in new ones. P.S. I had a mishap with the breakdown people. When they said it was going to take 1.5 Hours to reach me, I decided I would rather risk it and make it home myself.. when I called back to cancel they said if the guy has already left, then I will be liable to a charge of £92.50 for cancellation......outrageous.... the policy only cost me about £35. Ryanair springs to mind. The only person that will make me pay that will be a judge!
