Did this video help you?

Edward Washington: Thank you so much. Really not knowing much about autonrepairs at all, your video provided me step by step instructions on how to replace my alternator. I didn't know if I'd be able to do it but your video was EXTREMELY helpful. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Jason Bryant: Very helpful man appreciate very much

Christopher Finerty: Thank you, it was a breeze. nothing came out wrong.That's a first for me...thank you Mike.

Joey Steinhoff: Would a 01 Dakota 5.9 alternator be the same as a 02 ram 5.9 gas?

WAL720B: Good info except for my 2001 4.7 liter Dakota, the connections were different. One plug in the back and one bolted connection to the battery. The '01 also has three bolts connecting to the block. Took me, an absolute idiot with a tool in my hand, less than an hour.

Jake Miller: Can I leave the battery hooked up? I like a nice jolt of energy in the morning. Just kidding, this video may come in super helpful today, so thank you for sharing! 

TAV3RA: Great video. My alternator is on the right side. 2001 dodge durango 4.7 Looks like yours was on the left. (May be wrong) I also only needed 10mm ratchet to discconect battery, 15mm for the three bolts on alternator and a 13mm for the bolt on top connecting a wire. So kinda weird that u named all the other sizes. But very good video. Keep it up for us DIYers. Thank you for your time and effort of the video. 

Christopher Schneider: I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 5.7 i disconnected the negative battery cable then installed the new alternator and put all the connections back on the new alternator but when i reconnect the cable to the battery it burns out the new alternator any thoughts 

bruce westfall: Very nice. No stupid pulsing music. Thanks. No having the first 5 minutes being an offscreen voice talking about what he will do. Awesome. You speed thru the easy parts and now I know that I need a 7mm, 10 mm, 14mm socket and 14mm wrench. I will buy something from you someday in thanks. Bookmarked Liked and COMMENTED. Good job guys!

Francis Bibeau: Ok i know nada about cars and i just changed my alternator with this huge help. Thank you!

amed sanchez: My check Gauges light comes on my 2000 Dodge Durango 4.7L I replaced the Battery & Alternator still comes on but only when on freeway going 60/70 speeds when I come to a Stop the light turns Off Any Suggestions???

Troy K: Good video but your alternator seemed to come out easily compared to mine. Mine had a sleeve or insert in the bolt hole on the lower back side that prevented the lower bracket from coming apart from the mount. I ended up breaking the mount at the bolt hole to get the damn thing out. 

amed sanchez: Re : Check Gauges light coming on the Voltage also jumps all the way to 18

Nicholas Cruz: I have a 2000 Durango p1282 we just replace fuel pump relay still not starting

1A Auto Parts: LOL....thanks for watching. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @johndeer2780 You may be able to. The best thing to do would be to join an online Dodge Ram forum to see if any of the member have done this and what would be involved with the swap. Hope this helps you out.

johndeer2780: hey can i replace my 02 ram 4.7 liter with the 03 5.9liter engine in my 2002 ram quad 2wd

Dylan Guillory: Where does it say how many amps it has

1A Auto Parts: If it's the correct alternator for your vehicle, unhook the battery and transfer the wires from the old alternator to the new, they usually only go on one way so that you do not connect anything the wrong way. If it's bad we sell NEW alternators on our website 1aauto.com or you can call our sales staff @ 888-844-3393 Have a great day.

1A Auto Parts: If you go to one of your local auto parts stores they can test it for you to see if it's OK.

1A Auto Parts: @x2eZxteam You're welcome. Thank you for visiting our auto repair channel on YouTube.

1A Auto Parts: @PaloSouvannavong A screeching belt is one sign especially on a vehicle that has a self tightening serpentine belt. Lights dimming with lower engine speed is another sign. If your battery warning light comes on at an odd time that is the sign of a bad alternator. Many times an alternator gives out with little warning. There is no real set period for replacing them. I have had them go at 70K and last through 100K+

x2eZxteam: great directions!! I only needed to write down the wrenches and socket sizes, the rest was burned into my mind like an old memory. I didn't even have to think about what I was doing and it only took me 25 minutes. Thanks a mill !!!

Dave Lubovinsky: Great video, Mike! I followed your directions to a T and had the alternator replaced in my 02 Dakota Quad Cab in about 30 minutes. Thanks!

devon fowler: can you explain which terminal leads are positive an negitive. i got an alt from a dakota looks just like that and how can you test it not being in the car? MOST IMPORTANT What terminal leads are the pos and neg? there are 3 of what i see on mine as well. thanks

Tony Cota: Thank you! I feel like a mechanic now :)

1A Auto Parts: If you click on the link to our website it will tell you. This particular one is 136 amps

ChickenSalmonella: If I could only turn wrenches as fast as you do in the video! Thanks for uploading.

1A Auto Parts: At the beginning of the video we explain and list all of the tools you should need to make this repair including the different socket sizes that you should need. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

909belizeanboy: What size sockets are needed?

PaloSouvannavong: How do you know when your altenator is going out? How often should it be replaced? My suv is at 87,000 miles and never had it changed. Should i be changing it soon? Thanks for the awesome video.

1A Auto Parts: You may want to check to see if there's a draw on the battery which is causing it ot go dead.
