This is a rotor which is part of a Valeo alternator. This is very common fault and is seriously in need of repair.
This is after the repair and shows how the slip rings and regulator brushes should look like.You don't always have to buy a new regulator. The average cost of this repair is just £65 including cleaning out the unit and greasing of the bearing. The pictures above are a view of the internal components of a alternator.
Most engine light faults can be caused by simple carbon build up as picture above. These parts may just need cleaning rather then spending over £100 on a new EGR valve.
Some starter faults that cause overrun or make the unit stick can just be caused by dust contamination. This can be fixed for just £25.M C Alternators will fully strip the starter and clean the shaft and the drive and not just what you see on the outside.
This is how to remove an alternator from a Renault Megane/Scenic. Just remove the front end and then it's easy.
A customer came in with a burning smell in his car, he was very lucky he came to me when he did! This was a very bad case of a heater resistor failure as it started a fire in the fan housing unit and melted a hole straight through, causing the air filter to catch fire! Lucky for him it must of some how got blown out by the fan. Also the wiring was melted together causing a dead short.
We can remove your clocks/instrument cluster and get them repaired saving you 50% or more and most come with a 2 year warranty. This normally takes about3-5 working days days.
