Gas Monkey Garage Changing the Alternator and Battery

Installing your alternator and battery are two great beginner-level DIY car repairs. Richard Rawlings' crew member Charles Cimino installs a new Carquest alternator and belt, battery and cable into a Chevrolet Silverado.

Rawlings is an automotive mechanic and star of the reality TV show "Fast N' Loud." The owner of Gas Monkey Garage, Rawlings uses his skills and those of his crew, or "monkeys," to rebuild, modify, and maintain vehicles both new and old. The Gas Monkey Garage Crew consists of nine team members, including Cimino, who joined in 2014 and specializes in wiring.

Rawlings and the Gas Monkey Garage crew rely on Advance Auto Parts for the parts and tools they need for their projects. Be sure to stay tuned for more videos from the Gas Monkey Garage, and stop by your local Advance for your car maintenance and restoration needs.
