    Product was a great price, especially after using some on-line discount codes. Easy to install and got me back on the road. After applying the codes, the price for the lifetime replacement was about the same as the one year replacement. It is worth the time to use the on-line shopping feature.

            A:

            The best bet is to return this alternator and see if maybe we have another brand in stock for your van.
