I went online to be make sure I was on the right track in installing this. I found a youtube video that showed me exactly how to replace an alternator on a Ford Explorer. It was an easy bolt on and the belt was fairly easy to change since I was doing the alternator install.

    Original Alternator went after 150,000 miles. Ordered online at 5:30 AM was ready for pick-up when store opened. Not even a 1/2 hour to install on 1998 Ford Explorer.Charging better than the old one did the last 5 years at least

              Ref# 7787AN
              What is the working temperature of this product when idling? Just replaced it, the battery is recharging(was somewhat discharged) but Im concerned about 2 things...
              1- it feels extremely hot to the touch
              2- it seems to be making a clakety kind of noise from inside

                A:

                Hi there Ernie! Happy to help with your question! The operating temperature is not available but the alternator will get very hot due to voltage being produced and it being under the engine. Be very careful not to burn yourself by the way. The alternator should be relatively quiet if you are hearing noise there may be an issue with the pulley, the belt, or the internal bearings. We suggest having a certified mechanic have a listen to determine if something is happening.

                I'm happy to help, Jason! The brushes are replaced on this ToughOne Remanufactured Alternator - 130 Amps (Part No. P8499). Each part of the ToughOne remanufactured alternators that are most subject to wear and failure are replaced with new components and are 100% triple tested to ensure the highest quality.

            • Q:

              What is the warranty for this item? A reviewer states the lifetime warranty is great, but can't seem to find where this warranty is called out.
