Alternator Problem

Postby poTTa » Sun Sep 11, 2011 12:26 am

Gents/Ladies,

My alternator is keeping a lot of squeaking noises. I know it's the alternator because I had a mechanic check it and we both agreed that the bearings in it need changing. Also my battery is new-ish and it is not being charged properly. Also noticeable in the lights such as when using the turning signal my dash lights flicker or dims.

So....with all that said I checked TOYO-DIY but its saying that the bearings are Not applicable on page 1 of 2

Page 1 of 2

http://www.toyodiy.com/parts/p_J_2004_TOYOTA_ALTEZZA_SXE10-AEFVF_1903.html

Below the main tab of page 1 you can see it says - ('9810-'0105) 3SGE, 12V 90A Next >

So I'm reading that this refers to models from 1998 to 2001

And then page 2 has just - < Prev   ('0105-   ) 3SGE, 12V 90A

Which I think means models from 2001 until...

Am I correct?

Honestly, I can't believe, or rather it's very odd the alternator has no bearings!!!

Any help will be much appreciated...

No need for Toyota parts with this, just take the alternator to an Electrical rewinds service workshop and they'll sort it... they'll usually have a stock of bearings and brushes...
