Theodore

Theo was ontime and extremely courteous. He diagnosed my vintage Mercedes' problem and returned a week later. The replacement part they sent him was incorrect, so he reassembled my dashboard and waited for the correct replacement. When it arrived, he not only installed it, but followed me to a service station and then test drove the vehicle to check for other problems. I will ABSOLUTELY use Your Mechanic.com in the future to avail myself of a great mobile service. Thank you.

Peter

I have to say that I was a little apprehensive at first. Being a Mercedes driver, I've come to know that servicing these cars are anything but normal. So in asking I found that Peter approached this job different from the dealer. My mind was set to rest with a detailed explanation from Peter. He does excellent work with excellent cleanup as well. I was very happy with the outcome and also pleased that he was on time, early actually and very professional. I will be using him again I'm sure. Michael C

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.
