How hard is it to replace an alternator on a 1998 isuzu amigo 4-cylinder. The dealership thinks 575 is a fair price. Is it just loosening the belt and removing some bolts or am I missing something. I would go look but the dealer has it right now and is waiting for my call. Anyone have any help?
much appreciated!!!!

Does that include the part? IIRC, the Alternator is down low so maybe it's alot of time to get to just to pull it out. If the price includes the Alternator, it's probably a fair price as it's a few hundred for the alternator alone.

Good Luck,

Rubo purchased a replacement for around $215 when we were in Uwharrie. They take 'around an hour" to change, so figure 2 hours if you are doing it at home. The hardest part will be getting it out, once unbolted. We just posted an article about replacing the stock alternator with a GM unit, which will at least give you a few pictures of what you are going to do. It is at:

Looks like a piece of cake to changeout the alternator on the 1998+ Rodeo & RS- isuzu/holden/daewoo 2.2L. It's way up high & to the left + enough room under the hood to just about stand in there. Do yourself a favor & get a new/dealer alternator. Sometimes you get lucky w/ a rebuild, but more times than not, they only last a few months or so. G/luck
