Hi first thanks for your reply.
The alternator was fine before hand I had no symptoms. No dimming lights, no engine failure only a slight chirping noise which was diagnosed as a tension pulley.
No new belt was fitted when the new pulley as he mentioned he had got oil on the belt while taking it off.
He has brought the car back, Delivered to the door which is something ive never had with a garage. Followed with a bill for 128 for parts only & told to drop off the money when I have it, Again something ive never experienced before.
The car had the worst squeal you have heard when I collected the car which is whats pointing me in the direction that they have put it on too loose causing surges to the alternator or the oil spill caused the belt to slip also causing surges.
