I replaced the alternator on my 2007 Dodge Caliber with 110,000 miles. The decoupler turns out to be the part that was bad, but since the alternator has to be removed anyway to fix, I decided to replace with new alternator. The alternator was a perfect match. I would like to see videos on the on your web site for How to do replacements. I did have to go to the internet to find out how to get my alternator out. You have to unbolt the AC compressor and drier unit, and push to the side to squeeze the alternator between compressor and oil filter housing. It will not come out the top side. The power steering pump / alternator bracket is more complicated and has 2 bolts out of reach. I cannot complain about the quality at this time , but I do not see any issues now.

Installed this Alternator on my Jeep Patriot and it broke after two weeks under normal driving conditions. Not sure if this was a one time bad reman job as everyone else seems to have good luck with this product but, I unfortunately did not have the same luck.

Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 115 Amps:

It fit perfectly , just time consuming to put in, you have to take off a couple of plastic covers in the fender wells, take off the ground on the battery and it is behind the front bumper. Then take of a idle pully to get to a bolt and unbolt the air conditioner pump and move it out of the way to just get the altornator out and back in. Not to bad to change.

    Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 115 Amps:

    I was impressed with the quality of this remanufactured alternator, my work background is electric motor engineering. After the bearings, the second most common failure is in the windings, and this unit had very well done resin impregnated windings with a nice coating on the laminations too. The electrical components appear to be good quality, and the decoupling pulley is well made and substantial as well. Installation in the Dodge Caliber is difficult due to the way the car was designed, not because of this single part, however this one went in perfectly and works excellent.

    This is a well built alternator. It is rather difficult to replace this item on my vehicle due to placement. After 4 hours of wrestling with the alternator I was able to complete the install. New autos aren't very kind to DIY's.

          I just ordered the part online. I am not a mechanic. But it was very easy to order the part I needed and was able to get a very good coupon that saved me lots of money. I got the part the same day and great customer care.

          • Q:

            The specifications say this uses a clutch pulley. I have a 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T and I've been told that it uses a decoupler pulley and not a solid pulley. Is the clutch pulley the same as the OEM pulley used?

              For a normal vehicle you should be fine using the 115 amp alternator. If you have a lot of accessories, then you may run into an issue

              There thousands of things that could cause you vehicle's check engine light to come on. I recommend that you go to your nearest Advance Auto Parts store and get a free code scan.
