Default Two Peugeot Boxer questions

Can anyone provide some idea of the cost of having an overcharging
alternator replaced on a 1998 model?

What is the function of the curved 'button' on the ignition key slot on
the same model?

Can't answer the first, but the 'button' on the ignition switch (AFAIR)
allows you, when depressed, turn the ignition key in the reverse direction
to normal, and then remove. This leaves the side (parking lights) on (they
are normally extinguished when the key is removed).

Many thanks, Bob. I would never have considered that.

Rather than replace it with the standard one search around for something
called a 'smart regulator. As you need to replace yours anyway the cost
difference may not be great and they can make charging much more efficient.
http://www.sterling-power.com/ is worth a look.
