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 2http://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...
