Right, so, my parents drove down to welly with their fairly newly acquired 2002 Peugeot 306. Whilst down there, the car suddenly started randomly dying. AA call-out man told them it was the battery, so on Saturday morn they replaced the battery and then jumped on their flight to Chch for the weekend.
HOWEVER, Dad has just told me that upon trying to start the pug after installing the new battery, there was a bit of a 'bang' followed by smoke coming from the alternator. he suspects the internals have melted.
SOOOOOOOOOOOO...by any chance does anyone have a source for an alternative peugeot alternator? Otherwise we will be needing help to tow it from my brothers place (just up the road from the beehive...probably out to Shaz's dads workshop - (bout to text her now.)
If anyone can offer any help at all -- please contact my lil bro Matt on 021 844 520.
