    Well - there is hope that the day will end well -Inde' has reported back that he tested the alternator power again and it had dropped to 11.7v below the required 14v or normal power indication. However, having had the same unit replaced 21 months ago and still under warranty they had to change it FOC - well thats a first for my 300c SO all good again in the world for the next few hours anyway. Whilst I like my car I really can't abide the amount of making good that has to be carried out on a car like this. Alternator, brakes, swirl motor, fuel feed pipes, none broken just warn out. Haven't done a huge amount of mileage, and very well looked after car etc.

    Problem increasing, now the battery light takes about 4 miles to go out, concerned as this has the same symptoms as the fuel pipes splitting and the deisel running into the alternator (knackered last time) Car taken back to Inde' last night and said don't give it back until issue found and resolved. Saw that another member was quoted around 700 for a swirl motor to be changed etc, this inde' charged a whole lot more, starting to get suspicious about their pricing etc. If I knew what I was looking for I would buy the parts myself and just then have to pay for the labour. The total cost of swirl motor plus labour was considerably more than the quote from the Chrysler dealership. Will update when I have the answer from the Inde' as to what the additional problem is in case this information is useful to others.

    I have a 300c 2007 plate. Just had the swirl motor and bits replaced (god what a cost). A problem still exists: Turn the key on & let the usual lights go out (glow plugs etc) start the engine, all good, drive off and the red battery light comes back on for about 100 metres and then goes off. I have had the fuel lines and the alternator replaced about 18 months ago so hope to go it is not this AGAIN. Anyone had anything similar, what could it be, and what did it cost to put right?
