Esmerelda the Valiant

Well, she is valiant but she is not a Valiant.  She’s a Vauxhall Astra 1.4i (hi-torque model) and her alternator has stopped working.  But she is a real little trooper and thankfully her battery is new and fully charged as I have done about 10 miles in her since the light came on.  The manual said to stop driving immediately but I only read that after the 10 miles.  So, she is going in for some minor surgery on Tuesday to get her running again.  We’ll let you know how well she recovers.
