My thoughts exactly. Even if they have a temporary logistics problem, failing to communicate with dealers and customers is just inexcusable.

Yeh I got my car back with the aftermarket alternator. Feels the same how it used to be, no additional sluggishness and the A/C still feels cold - unlike some others had reported.

Service manager had said the replacement part may come in sometime later in the year, June, July, Aug or Sept etc.

I had a look around and was unable to find any stickers. I'll take another look when I get home. Service dealer wasnt able to tell me the make/model either.

Maybe Aldi has a sale on alternators and they queued up with all the other dealers to snap them up

Cant see anything on the part to indicate what it maybe.

I was told the PCM was replaced with a new. However, what is in my car still looks the same, ie same old red dirt just like everything else around it from all my offroad trips. Do you think the dealer was trying to make a buck or two from me/FCA(sending the bill part of the recall)?

I was just curious. My new Jaylec has no ID on the unit itself, only on the box.

Don't worry, I'm also cynical about workshop practices, who knows what they replace (or not)? Not that uncommon for even basic consumables not being changed yet still charged for! I now ask for all the replaced parts to be given back to me (filters and other bits that were prescribed for the job). My dad used to mark the old parts and if the car was handed back with a mark still in place, they soon knew about it!!
