That's the sort of price I'd expect from a dealer Phil.

 

As a matter of interest, a colleague of mine (the chap whose car convinced me to buy an S Type) had his alternator changed recently. He bought the alternator as a reconditioned unit and paid the same garage that I use £25 in cash to do the work. Although the mechanic did moan like a Pyard afterwards :lol:

 

His car is a diesel like mine but I shouldn't think there would be much difference for a petrol engined car.

I was thinking in the region of £30-£40 that's why I posted it I personally thought well over the top.

Hi Phil,

 

That price does sound like a dealers quote for a one and a half hour's work.

For work of this nature I wouldn't be concerned with a Jaguar independent Phil.

 

My garage is just a one man operation based in the middle of nowhere. But I'd trust him to either do a spot on job or to decline, telling me that it requires Jaguar specific tools etc.

 

He has looked after all my cars for the last 20 years for general maintenance and servicing requirements.
