i had diesel leaking onto my alternator from my fuel pipe about 4 months after i bought it (2nd hand car, 3 years old). Ruined the alternator which the dealer replaced for free, but got stung with a £350 charge for a brand new fuel line front to back, was told it wasnt covered in the warrenty :/
apparently oil and fuel can drip onto the alternator, so later models were fitted with a plastic splash guard preventing it happening.
