A dealer was trying to take me for a ride to change the alternator for $540 after taxes ($220 for parts and 3.5 to4.5 hrs). Having done this several times over the years and working in a garage 30 yrs ago, I know it should only take 1.5 hrs and the part would be $120 to $160. I gave this a shot hoping for the best. The price was right what I would expect as well as the estimated time included in the price. After booking at 4:15 PM an emergency came up and I needed to leave early at 5. I sent a message asking (kind of pleading) if Jose might show up or finish early. He was smart and didn't proomise anything as he didn't know what he was getting into fully yet but shaid he would do his best. He did. I am rarely impressed by others and more often disappointed with "service calls". However, Jose DID impress. He showed up 45 minutes early and completed the work in record time. Thanks again! Needless to say he's already being recommended to my co-workers and he will be called on again by myself.
I've had to deal with other auto mechanics since I started driving cars. This is the first time I've been able to say that I'm impressed by, first the quickness at which Jose completed the alternator change, and with honest up front cost of the service he provided. What also impressed me was the appointment was set for 8:30 am Jose arrived at 8:29. He would been here sooner but the address took him to the front entrance of my mobile home park, and he had to find the lot number. He completed the job in 1/2 hour and I was back on the road again by 9:15 am. WOW, I normally would have been all day waiting for a mechanic just to look at my car then given a time that it would be finished. Thanks for the prompt, and honest services you've provided!

Casey is friendly and knowledgeable mechanic. Nissan Murano is definitely not the easiest car to work with, but he figured it all out and did a perfect job of replacing a broken alternator. I will definitely use his services again as well as recommend him to my friends and colleagues. YourMechanic is awesome, too. I though it would take at least a few days to get my car fixed, and then I found YourMechanic.com at around midnight, booked an appointment and went to sleep. The next evening my car was already fixed, in less than 24 hours!

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.
