Why do you think you need a new alternator?

There is a rubber coupling and a clutch that connects the alternator to the engine that can go tits up.

These should be changed as a service item, along with the aircon coupling, every [I think] 80,000 miles/120,000 klicks although most dealers don't know this!

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

The car won't start it also won't hold the charge once jumped. There's a really loud rattle coming from the alternator as well the top pulley looks to be going around twisted.
