So yesterday i am going round a corner at reasonable speeds in my S4 and my passenger side cv joint basically exploded, grease every where all over my left front wheel. What strange is when that came on my ABS light also came on and battery light, all my dials stopped working and my battery started to loose charge. So this morning I cleaned up the wheel and started up the engine and all was fine no error codes nothing on VAG com and batter had a good charge.
I had the CV joint replaced today and then on my 7 miles journey home the battery voltage was just creeping down, until eventually I broke down. Battery completely flat, called out green flag and they advised me that the alternator was not charging the battery.
How much am I looking at paying to fix my alternator at a VW audi specialist and can any body see any reason why it would start doing this after a CV joint going.
BTW the car is on 112k
