The alternator

When you replace your alternator, it’s a good idea to inspect or replace your serpentine belt at the same time. Your technician will have to remove the old belt anyway so he might as well put on a new one when he’s done. And the number one way to damage a new alternator is a battery that’s on its last legs; the alternator has to overwork to keep it charged. If your battery is 5 years old ask us to test it, or install a new battery at the same time as your alternator.
