Pug 106 not charging up the battery - LinuxGeek
I've got a strange problem with my car for past few days. It decided to not start the other day while I was away from home but with the help of a mate we managed to push start it. It looks like car isn't charging up the battery. I put the battery in another car and the battery got charged up no problem and started the car as normal and then I drove the car for good half an hour or so hoping that the battery would get fully charged but instead it was totally flat after me leaving the lights on for a bit (while i was driving the car). Now its not starting up at all. Could it be the alternator? If so how expensive it is to buy a new one or a re-conditioned one is good enough?
Thanks for any suggestion and advise thx.

oldman - you're right. It looks like diesel is leaking from the pump because I looked at the alternator yesterday and it was all wet. It sounds like even if I'll get it re-conditioned the same thing would happen in near future?

There should be a plastic shield fitted below the pump to prevent fuel leakage onto the laternator . Peugeot foresaw the problem. Fiddly to fit so often thrown away.
Is yours missing?
Scrapyard job.

You say it worked ok on another car so the problem is car specific,you may have a leak but the basic problem is still there ie its not charging so while you are putting the shield on it would be a good time to have the alternator tested .

I had to get the alternator changed but I couldn't find any diesel Peugeot/AX/Saxo in the scrap yards so couldn't get the plastic shield. It looks like I'll have to get it ASAP otherwise I'll be facing same problem in near future.

Surely it would be better to fix the fuel leak from the pump.
