DIY Alternator Replacement
Saved 31% over local auto parts store and received part in 2 business days. I estimate that I also saved somewhere around $400 installing it myself. I have some experience but it had been a while so I watched the video and had it cued up in case I needed to refer to it but was a pc of cake. Great site!
