      Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 130 Amps:

      This alternator was a great buy$$$$ My only suggestion would be that the store had the correct mounting jig to check the old alternator. I only say this because I had the old one out of my 2005 Ford Escape just 1 month prior to it going bad. I had it out while replacing the transfer case and brought it into Advance to have it checked since changing it later is a 5 hr job! I understand they cannot have ALL the mounting jigs for EVERY car but the Ford Escape is a very popular vehicle.

      Any one that is going to change a ford escape alt should think twice or leave five hours aside and be very qualified. As you must remove axle and jack the motor this is the worst alt I have ever done think twice about it

            Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 130 Amps:

            I bought this expecting to use it. Sadly, in the past I've dealt with buying an alternator, then installing it, only to find it did not work. So I specifically said "test this" BEFORE i leave the store. AA didn't have the bracket to test it. So, I said, what if it doesn't work? .... well, guess what. IT DIDN'T.
