So far, the alternator is performing as expected. However, when I picked it up at the store they gave me the wrong part. I didn't know it until I dropped my car off at the garage and my mechanic started to put it on. Had to return it to the store to exchange it for the correct part then get another appointment with my mechanic to have it installed. Decent product, bad service from the store.

My old alternator was bad and this one works, and was an exact replacement. a It was a pain to install but that's Ford's fault. Part appears to meet expectations and appears to be similar quality as stock, but I guess time will tell for sure.

local store does not honor warranty

By 

from Hilliard, OH

Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 110 Amps:

the alternator failed within the warranty period. works for approx 15 minutes then begins to drop voltage to less than 11 volts after less than 20 minutes. local store would not honor warranty - said their machine shows good output (their machine tests it for less than 1 minute).
I told the clerk (Pablo) that I would be willing to wait if he would leave it on test for a few minutes - he said that would not be possible and that there was nothing else that he could do for me.

      This product was a perfect fit for my 2005 Ford Focus. It was pain and misery to install, but after installation we were getting plenty of power to the battery. I would definitely recommend this product!

      Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 110 Amps:

      I would recommend this product because it's covered by the life time warranty. It was not easily installed but as long as you take your time and keep track of nuts and bolts location there wasn't any problems encountered. There are several UTube videos that are helpful. I removed the alternator from the top rather than from the bottom. I still had to put the car on jack stands and remove the passenger side front tire to access the bottom nuts and bolts. Also it proved easier to get to the serpentine drive belt and release the pressure on the belt.

          Advance had this part in stock and with an online coupon I found it was an excellent buy. With a little help from a mechanic friend we were able to pull the old alternator off my son's car and replace it.

          Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 110 Amps:

          First one lasted 2 weeks, then the battery light came on again. So I took the car to test it, yup my ''new'' alternator that was a royal pain in the butt to change died. So I go in to exchange, I ask them to test the replacement on the machine before I went to install it again. Guess what, IT FAILED! So they pulled yet another off the shelf, this one passed. So, 3rd times the charm? Honestly that's a ridiculous failure rate and I do not recommend this product unless you want to change it again.
