Hello all,

Looks like after sitting through the winter, the alternator has seized up. Massive amount of smoke from the belt. Tried turning the unit with a 22mm socket, and it turned but with difficulty and a grinding noise.

My question is for those of you who have replaced the alternator, were there any brands you would recommend? I am considering a napa rebuilt or 1 of many choices on rockauto.

Rockauto has an NSA new unit, for 170$ which seems very inexpensive for a new unit. Anyone have experience with this brand? But as i need the car running ASAP i might go with a napa... any feedback on any reman' units would be appreciated.

thanks

Picked up and installed Napa rebuilt alternator. 169$ + core. they said it comes with a 3 yr warranty. Unit appeared to be identical, and fit.
