You've had 3 alternators die or your alternator has gone on the shits for the 3rd time?

Explain the situation

altinators are one of those things where 99% of the time you are buying a rebuild. it could be that the rebuild was not as great as the oem ?

What went wrong on them?
If it was bearings, likely too much tension.
It could be other stuff tho. Like voltage regulator, or brushes.
Personally, I have found OEM parts work best on these cars.

the one that was on my car was working great... the car just gave up
