I am not a car guy, but very quick and intelligently can see the alternator. And being quoted for $500 to change the part(labor+part), seems unreasonable.

I wondered if anyone has detailed steps they could give me so I can accurately decided if this is something I can do.

I also work for LKQ and can get the part cheaper than distributor, so I would very much rather do this myself if plausible.

Thanks everyone, this is my first post so if there is anything(etiquette or standard) let me know.

It's a 30-60min job for the 2.5, even as a newbie. Probably not even your alternator that's shot, just the clutch pulley...may even be under warranty still?

The 3.5 is a whole different kettle of fish...drain and remove rad....etc etc. Even then $500 is still a bit steep unless it includes an aftermarket part. See my .sig for details on that.

what d0ugmac1 said. should take about 30-1hr 1/2 to do. it's literally disconnect the battery. remove passenger wheel, remove plastic shield in passenger wheel well, 14mm and remove serpentine belt. 10mm remove engine cover, remove dipstick, 10, 12, 13, 14mm to remove alternator harness/bracket, and the alternator itself

I'm taking mine in to be covered under warranty see what they say. The vibration at low rpms is annoying
