I thought that this return work would be covered by previous install and was surprise to see a $70 charge to my charge card? Perhaps this was in error? I supplied the gas as I did previously it leaked out due to a a faulty fitting not seen during installation I guess? Please advise.

All about Alternator Replacement

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
