Find myself in Cornwall with a knackered alternator (I think) in the SC. Just wonder if someone in the group has any suggestions about getting home to the Midlands..! I have a few possible options of course, but just seeing if there are any others....

As Waylander said generally brushes are knackered. Any LUK or Bosch agents around. Or a decent old school garage. During Daylight if you charge the battery you should get a reasonable distant. Two charged batteries should get you home.
There's deffo some specialists in Devon like Crispin Manners.

Depending on where you are in Cornwall millers garage in Falmouth are great.

Good luck!

Edit: just seen the date posted, hopefully you’re home by now!!
