Fit and function same as OEM. As easy to install as any other Honda part is... No fault of the alternator... Been in for a few weeks now and performing as designed, 14.4 V out consistently and plenty of amps. Good stuff!

I installed the first one alternator on a 2003 Honda Civic EX, and on the first startup, the battery light would not turn off. It just stayed on, even with a brand new battery, solid grounds, and new belts. I figured it must be a bad one, and swapped it out at my local Advanced. The second time, I had them bench test the alternator, and it passed their bench test (though there were some fluctuations on the printout). I installed the now second alternator in the car, and the battery light turned off! Voltage reads great, 14.2v at 2k rpm idle. I noticed later that night that the headlights would flicker depending on engine rpm though, and within 10 minutes of driving, the battery light started to flicker.... I checked the AC/Alternator belt, falls within Honda's spec of deflection along the top, so there is no belt slip. I drove around for another 15 or so minutes, and the alternator now has the battery light on at idle, and even when cruising. When I unplug the battery from the car as it's running, it cuts out immediately, and shuts down. I don't stand alone with these not working in Honda's, it's very common for these to fail, and apparently quality control is not something Worldwide has in it's vocabulary.

Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 70 Amps:

After reviewing install on line it only took about 45 mins to uninstall and reinstall the new one. That allowed time to file the mounts and lubricate surfaces and reinstall the new belts

              Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 70 Amps:

              Thought I'd save some money and replace the part. It gave me intermittent problems but they kept telling me the part was fine. And it was, it simply was incompatible with my 2003 Civic. Ended up at the dealer, the power fluctuations ended up frying my ECU. At dealer prices I was lucky it was under warranty or I would have just sold the car and got a new model to avoid future trouble.
              First sign of trouble get your car to a dealer or mechanic.
