Quick Alternator question

Recommended Posts

Hi all. 

Alternator went in my 97 D'Elegance yesterday. 

The only one I see on Rockauto that I want is listed for the Concours.

I have done alternators on these many times and have never had an issue. 

My car does not have heated windshield, neither does the alternator listed for the Concours

My question is What the heck is the difference between the Concours one and the D'Elegance one? I have no idea why there are 2 different ones listed

REMY91409 is the one I am looking at. I really would like to get it in time for this weekend.

Thanks all

Well with the unknown difference I ended up ordering a BBB reman locally. 2 days away. Not what  I would have liked but I suppose it will have to do.

Says it has a lifetime warranty.

I have used BBB they do a good reman.  I was in their facility on Long island and they are knowledgeable.

Anytime

I was especially impressed that they knew that if the NS alternator was not properly rebuilt an F code (I think its the F code) shows up, it has to do with the using the proper regulator.

Hope this alternator works out great for you! 👍🏼

This discussion brought back a tough memory where I had just replaced the alternator on my beautiful 98 Eldo.  I sold it a week later and the new owner didn’t even make it home, a 20 mi. drive before breaking down. He called to say the car had warning lights come on and when he stopped and looked the serpentine belt had broke... Turned out that the reman alternator I had bought from Autozone had seized up and taken out the belt! 

I gave him $200 back from the purchase price for his troubles and got another alternator from Autozone for him. That was the only time I had ever experienced that, but sure was embarrassing!🤦🏻‍♂️
