The final update on this. The alternator has a 2 year warranty so changed FOC. as it stands prices are average but labour kills everything. As previous posts have said check with volt metre. Although about 18 months life time sounds a bit scairy and in this day and age quite frankly rubbish ��
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?:smashfrea at:

Hi, one of the other guys on here told me you had heaps of trouble with your steering wheel locking and then the engine not starting? He said yours turned out to be something simple to do with the tyre pressure module?? I just recently got new 22" wheels and they for got to put the tyre pressure sensor things back into the wheels from the original tyres?? Is this the problem you had?? Thanks
I am new to this forum and would welcome advice on the following.
I have owned a 300C CRD SRT from new since (Nov 2010).
The dipped mirrors on selection of reverse on the auto box travel (dip) about 1-2 inches only. Has the travel of the mirrors changed from earlier models as my previous 300c (2006) produced dipped mirrors to view the rear wheels. Many thanks.
my engine management light came on recently in my 07 CRD, so i took my car to my local garage. a fault code came up regarding the DPF, it was showing a reading of 299% full! however, the car is driving perfect. Any help please
Ray, can I pick your brains ?
Arnie has developed a rattle that sounds like a small bag of small spanners in a tin box being rattle around. I've had a shuftie and the brake shield on the back of the d/s frnt wheel is hanging loose (it looks like the holders have corroded away), is the brake cover/shield important and if not, is it a simple DIY removal job ?
Hi! could do with your works telephone number re servicing/work etc on my 300crd. I live near M6 Knutsford services so it's an easy ride to you. I've a problem at the moment. One of the 3 inch 10 mm rubber fuel pipes has just split wide open on me, dumping half a tank of fuel on the ground. ( "Oh bugger!" he cried.) I can't get the replacement part ( P/N 0178104218519) which has a bend in it. Straight pipe just kinks closed. Chrysler will only sell me a complete pipe kit-Bastards!! Any advice would be welcome. Ta.
No sorry mate,we didn't lose all the fluid when we changed the seal,it was a top up which was 2 litres,if you buy the dipstick it shows you on the dipstick for a cold or hot level,if you buy the stick you only have to put it in so far until you feel pressure,if you try and push it all the way it will jam in there......I know.....lol
