Don’t worry found it on WF site for £130

hopefully back on the rd before 22nd as got a track day.

Then time to sell her as main vehicle has let us down and I need the cash.

Looks like a Denso copy,looks brand new so not worn out😏

 

Might be worth checking you are not overspeeding the alternator. 

 

Crank pulley size divided by alternator pulley size multiply by the engine max revs.

 

That will give you alternator max RPM,does not want to be above 18k RPM

You can likely get it repaired to save replacing it.

Do this!  It slightly concerning when it starts smoking while stuck in traffic after a track day.  Ask me how I know....

Shame

Ordered thanks very much for this.

 I will let you know how it fits.

 I will cancel order with WF when I am sure  it’s ok.

 

 I wonder if you are experts in VW high pressure diesel common rail systems as it’s baffling my garage!

Theyve put the price up as its out of stock....it's a common practice on eBay to save relisting at a later date.
