Alternator story - finale

Well, I told you all that I’d post when I changed the alternator. I never got the chance.

I knew mine was going, so last week I ordered one. Yesterday on the way to work, my warning light came on. I drove to the nearest shop (I know the guys there) and got it changed. Last night when I got home, the one I’d ordered was on my doorstep. Sigh. I MUST learn not to procrastinate!

If you ordered the alternator from RockAuto, they have a pretty forgiving return policy. They’ll even pay for the return shipping!

I can return it…as long as I don’t procrastinate too long…
