Install was a breeze and immediately took care of the problem. Make sure your battery is in good shape and fully charged to allow alternator time to break in under light loads. Original problem was off and on low charging voltage output. Dealer said there was no problem but it only showed up after driving for a while or pulling camper. So far no problem great product anyway and great warranty lifetime!! I would purchase again and again and have installed many of these alternators with no issues.

Replaced original alternator with this Carquest one. It whined very loudly at most all RPM's. Took back to shop, discussed with staff. Exchanged with another new one. It also whines, but not as loud and the RPM band to hear it is just above idle to around 1100 RPM's. Still annoying. Functionality is fine, just noisy. People ride with me comment on hearing a police siren in the distance.

Noisy. Bought it new NOT REFURBISHED and its noisy. You hear the noise over the motor and radio. It is doing the job but the old original alternator was quiet.

                The Box is marked as a new alternator, the stock number says new, the alternator says new, just a little confusing on why the certificate it comes with has an ISO testing number like it was rebuilt. Either way, looks and works just as good as the Factory Original (at least so far)
