Mate, here in US they are not licensed to rebuild the liquid cooled alternator. And rebuild kits are not available for this reason. There are just a few companies that are able to do that...
Once the voltage regulator goes bad, the whole circuit board has to be replaced. My personal search lead me to NAPA autoparts for the best deal: around $300 for the rebuild one.
