Where To Buy The Alternator
Normally, I would recommend buying your alternator online because it’s a whole lot cheaper... but in this case, my suggestion to you is to buy it from your local auto parts store even though it’ll cost a bit more.
The main reason why is that if you suspect you have a defective alternator right out of the box (and believe me, this happens with this type of unit), you can have your local parts house test it and warranty it for you on the spot.
If your online-purchased alternator turns out defective out of the box... you’ll have to mail it back and you’re out of more time and possibly money.
