citroen Ax overcharging

have checked connections to alternator and have changed them anyway its kicking out 17 volts at idle and 19 volts at 2500 rpm suspect the volage regulator is at fault
local factors want £60 for an exchange alternator and cant find anyone who stocks voltage regulators any one found a stockist for volatage regulators

Hi Jeff - Have you tried GSF? <http://www.gsfcarparts.com/
There's one on Cutler Heights Lane between Leeds & Bradford, close to the top of Wakefield Road in Bradford.

auto-electrical specialists will stock regulators, though I must admit I have not looked recently. Last time all I wanted was a pair of brushes, but I had to buy the regulator as well as it was all one part. As you can get exchange units, the parts must be available. Certainly the fault you describe points to the regulator, but it "could" just be a broken wire in the sensing feed to the reg. which would possibly be inside the unit.

under Car Electrics. Just done a search, http://www.btinternet.com/~volkzpartz/starters.htm http://www.2cvcity.co.uk/parts.html And on the GSF forum, I found this. Valeo Alternator reg. GSF # 91035 £19.00 + vat URL http://www.gsfcarparts.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID 88 I think this might be the VW section, but Valeo parts are most likely interchangable

Brian ( snipped-for-privacy@tesco.net) gurgled happily, sounding much like they were saying :

I dunno about the GSF one, but a 2cv one certainly won't fit - 2cvs use an external VR, whereas the AX uses one built in to the alternator.

thanks for the advice guys so looks like the best avenue for me now is to get the I.D numbers off my alternator and get in touch with gsf guy on that forum said £19 for a reg/brush assy which is less than my local scrappy wants for a bosch one off a 106 1.1 (he wants £30 btw)
