Default Replacing Alternator Cost for Labour only

Hello all

I have my car up for sale however I may undertake a secret mission. I see there is a alternator for sale so how much for labour?

I have been quoted £400 for a reconditioned alternator plus fitting. If purchasing the £40 option plus delivery how much for the actual job?

I don't want to part with the car if it can be made road worthy I prefer to take this route.

not only does it explain what is involved in doing the job there are times onhow long people too to do it as well.

hope this helps

I did mine from underneath without removing the bumper in about 2 to 3 hrs . Interrupted by going off to get a replacement alternator.

Recently got a diesel one fitted. The mechanic said it took him nearly 5 hours but they charged me 280 euros including the cost of a new valeo unit.
They originally thought it would take no longer than 2 hours so charged me for that instead of the 5.
