    I wonder if you shouldn't perhaps take it to him after you have sourced a replacement, maybe use that as a test unit to see if he can find the stuff to fix it. Could end up saving a few people a couple of bucks.
    He was very helpful. I am still thinking about getting it to him to assess whether it can be repaired or not, but apparently due to this unit using a D lin regulator, the chances are slim.

    Caelex - Could not be bothered to respond
    Bosch (Direct and various service centres) - Could not be bothered to respond
    Masterparts - Could not be bothered to respond

    The only person who was helpful was Div de Villiers although he doubts that it can be repaired due to lack of spares locally.

    Looks like an import it will have to be.

    Yup, the auto industry doesn't really care about electronic communication mostly.... speak to a human on the phone like it's 1988
