348 Alternator Question
Sorry if this question has been asked somewhere prior and I just didnít see it, but does anyone have any advice about an Alternator in a 1992 348? It appears that I have a problem with the Alternator, and a local mechanic in San Diego has recommended that instead of using a rebuilt unit that I should purchase a factory replacement kit with a new wiring harness for a cost of $1,300, plus another $800-900 for installation. Another local mechanic in the Los Angeles area says a rebuilt unit is fine for $150, plus $350 for installation. The local mechanic gave me a lower cost option, but said I could be looking at the same problem within a couple of months. I canít believe that Alternators only last a couple of months, and donít know if I should spend the additional money to fix the problem, or find another mechanic.
