Fits perfectly, but bolt head is different size than OEM.
Oh, this just went right in and works perfectly. The only issue is the attachment bolt head size is different. Original is 15 mm hex. The new bolt with this one is an American size (I believe it is 5/8" but cannot recall). Installed onto 04 Monte Carlo.

What would cause my battery light to come on?
Brenda G July 18, 2018
1) Bad battery (have it tested at a local shop) 2) Battery is not connected properly. 3) The alternator is starting to fail. 4) The belt / belts in your engine bay are not tight enough - you may need a new belt / belts.
