Alternator Replacement

Your starter, battery, and alternator work in sweet harmony to get your engine running and power your vehicle’s technology. When they don’t work as they should, we’ll diagnose the issue and perform repairs as needed.

How much should I expect to pay for an alternator replacement?

The cost for alternator replacements depends on your vehicle and whether you choose a new or refurbished alternator. As is often the case with other parts, alternator replacements for specialty and/or European models may cost more. Your local Best-One service advisor will guide you through the process.

What we do:

  • Visual alternator and starter inspections
  • Diagnostics to measure your vehicle’s starter, alternator, and battery voltage
  • Alternator replacement
  • Belt inspection & replacement
  • Hose inspection & replacement
  • Courtesy service inspection

How long does an alternator replacement take?

At a Best-One Tire & Service location, alternator replacements are typically a same-day repair, depending on part availability. If we find additional repairs that need to coincide with the alternator replacement, it may take more time. To ensure you get in and out as quickly as possible, please be sure to schedule an appointment.

When do I need an alternator replacement?

Alternator replacements do not need to be part of your routine vehicle maintenance. Instead, we recommend having your alternator and starter checked any time you have trouble starting your vehicle or sustaining power.

Here are some signs that your vehicle might be due for an alternator replacement:

  • You have trouble starting your vehicle
  • You hear clicking or grinding when you start your vehicle
  • Your check engine, “GEN”, or battery dash lights stay on
  • Your headlights and/or dashboard lights are dim
  • You smell burning rubber or wires inside the cab
