Well certainly not going to be covered the Fiat group. Get it rebuilt by an alternator rebuilder would be the best bet. Even if its only the bearings. There is a place in Markham I used years ago for a Astro Van alternator.

Well the bearing could be swapped fairly quickly. It shouldn't be too hard to pull the alternator and wait for the repair (if pre arranged) then put it back in. $450 however is out rages IMO.

Sent the info in a PM
