A car breaking down is a stressful experience, but Tyrone turned that around. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and is great at communicating to the non-mechanically inclined and the mechanically inclined alike. He called before arriving and arrived a few minutes early. He was finished much quicker than I thought he would be. I am recommending Tyrone and Your Mechanic to EVERYONE! R. Schwardt

Great service and pleasure to deal with. Greg completed work without issue and the car is running in perfect condition after work. Voltage remains stable at 14V after install as per VW specifications. Greg was more than happy to provide answers to any questions I had. Greg had all materials needed for work and was a great experience. A+++ service, will look to book Greg again next time any issues arise with my vehicle.

Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

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.

Alternator

Before repairing the alternator:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.
