it will require a little dissassembly, but it's not hard at all.

first thing is the wiper cowl will need to come out, then the alternator is right there for the changing.

it's a good 1-2 hour job with hand tools, and all is done without getting under the vehicle.


still interested? write back, i'll (or someone)will walk you through it


how do you know it's bad first, it's very rare for one of these to go bad, they're usually good to 200,000 miles, then just need fresh brushes. make sure it has a good belt and tensioner, they go bad way more often.



let us know

Use my "The Basics" and there's a alternator output test there. Tell us what you find.

If you need to replace it make sure you buy one from the dealer as many aftermarket replacement alternators are of poor quality.
