Dear clienter what revisions did the RAC man make to say this?

Basically my battery in my hybrid has died. I've been told that the alternator is busted. I have a mechanic who is willing to replace my alternator but he needs a specific alternator model no that is used in X5s
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Basically he started the engine, and checked if battery is charged. Battery wasn't charging. He assessed that the alternator is gone and that is why the battery is dead
