No complaints at all about the alternator but the installation in my Focus was dicey there for a while, I not being an experienced mechanic. However, that has to do with Ford's layout of the engine compartment, not the alternator itself. In the end I managed it.

First the pro's: Alternator was a perfect fit and easy to install. Online ordering with discount code saves excellent amount of money.
Con's: Why me? Every once in awhile you get a bad rebuild. I got one. Alternator functioned flawlessly when first installed and (after 2 weeks) is now fluctuating in voltage with the alternator light coming on intermitantly. Now I have to pull and replace.

      Had to buy from another vendor as this is not the right part.

      The alternator bolts need to be perpendicular to the belt not parrallel.

                  Not much to report. The alternator fit and worked fine out of the box. Charge voltage ran 14.4 to 14.6. Resolved customer charge light squawk traced to internal voltage regulator overvoltage issue (15.5 - 15.9 V).
