Question 98 windstar alternator

my wifes windstar's battery light just started intermittently coming on. it seems to come on more when I race the engine and then goes off. At idle the interior lights seem to dim and brighten a little. Could this be caused by a bad connection to the battery or a bad voltage regulator. Is the V.R. replaceable on this model or should I just replace the whole alternator. It has a white piece on the back of the alt. and I thought this might be an exterior v.r. but I've never replaced one,if that's the problem. Thank you.Beer 4U2

Could be battery connection + or - at battery or other end of cables. Could also be a loose alternator belt slipping.
