My dealership says that to change the altenator and a belt tensioner will cost $1600 because of having to remove the turbo to get to it. I have a c230 kompressor. Does that sound reasonable to you??? I'm a lady with no car repair knowledge.

Get another shops opinion because they can install a rebuilt alternator for much less and you can check that estimate here www.repairpal.com/estimator and locate a shop near you here www.repairpal.com/directory A Napa rebuilt alternator sells for $257 to $383 in our area https://partimages.genpt.com/largeimages/575936.jpg

ok, thanks. Just wondered if the story about the turbo was credible.

Yes they might have to remove and replace it but the book time allotted for this isn't quite 2 hours
