First I want to say a big thank you to the people of this forum, thanks to you guys, I have saved at least 1200 dollars this year.
I changed my alternator this weekend, and Slick's fastest time is safe from me, but the bottom line is, thanks to Slick's write-up, I was able to change mine myself, that saved a chunk of change right there. It actually took about 6 hours altogether, most of that time was getting up to look for a tool, either in the house, somewhere in the garage or the motorhome. I did have to go to Autozone and get a tool to get the tierod end seperated, but once I had that, no problems, it slid right out.
I put a new one in that has a lifetime warrenty on it (not from Autozone).
So a great BIG thank you to you guys. You've made this old lady's way to go a lot easier. My friends are amazed. I'm just thankful.
YOU GUY's ROCK!!!!!
