I wonder how many UK members there are who own a second generation 300C and find it difficult to get parts these days. Recently my alternator blew, but in fairness it was the original and I have just passed 140,000 miles, that was obtained but at over £1100 to get and fit, sadly when it blew it took out the glow plug control module. This was a nightmare to try and get a replacement, the garage couldn‘t find any UK supplier and was looking as far as Milan to source one. In the end I used a specialist breaker (ACD) in Lancaster to get a second hand one. Obviously a lot cheaper but highlighted how difficult it is to get parts now. I have been told this is a particular problem for second generation as not many were sold in the UK and Fiat canned production shortly afterwards.

Anyone having these issues or know of a good supplier of parts?

Many parts are shared with later Jeeps so there are some around. The Custom300c guys keep the routine service parts: Link

Sounds like I've done the same upgrade as you, from my 2008 CRD to a 2014. I've not had to do anything major to mine yet, service parts seem to be able to be found with a bit of searching.
