Easy said after the failures, but you would have had the benefit of a 2-year warranty if you (or your garage) had used genuine replacements from VW or TPS.

IIRC, the alternator has a "freewhee/clutch" which should be changed at the same time.

the one thats being changed at the mo is under warrenty as its a genuine vw part, these parts should not be failing like this do you think there could be other factors to it eg. the garage thanks for your reply billthedog
