Can anyone advise on where I can get a replacement as the local garage said it wasn't on their standard parts list.
once you have a part number it should be possible to source from a specialist independent
however I had mine rebuilt by a good auto electric guy for about £75.
Might only need brushes which is an easy fix

The place I bought my replacement alternator from (http://www.startermotor-alternator-store.co.uk/toyota-4-runner-30-td-93---95-alternator-a2054-6045-p.asp) still stock the same (non-Toyota) model A2054 and it's now cheaper at £122 incl delivery. (After 4 years, mine is still going strong tho' I had to replace the 15-year-old battery last month.)
The part number is:
12V 10 22 11 - 2080
If anyone knows of someone in the York area who can remove and rebuild the alternator for me (I'm inept when it comes doing this stuff myself, even removing and refitting!).
I jus did a search, link below
I have used them in the past and no problems.
Try the link below put in your chassis No and go to groups then electrics and then alternator, this will give you the part number. I find Lancashire rotating are good for alternators and starter motors. Tel:-01772 623600 they will do a next day delivery but if you are near Preston you can collect, they usually supply new units so don't want the old unit back but this does depend on the availability of the alternator you require.
Hope this helps.
I contacted KG Auto Engineers near Huddersfield and they confirmed what I was finding i.e. that getting hold of a replacement alternator for the 3.4 petrol V6 is virtually impossible. However, I took it into them and they repaired and re fitted the alternator and gave the van a full service for about £400.
Very efficient and I'll use them for any future Granvia repairs.
