Hello again everyone--my girlfriends Bonne is having some issues
I'm guessing it'* the alternator. To describe the problem, a few months ago, it started dying. Let it sit for a day and it wouldn't start and needed to be jumped. Eventually it started getting really bad, so I decided to replace the battery, figuring if this new one died it would be the alternator. Put the new battery in, it worked great, for maybe, two months or so now. Now it'* not starting anymore. She drove the car to my house tonight and when we went to go an hour or so later, it wouldn't start and the lights inside were dim.
Anyway, I'm figuring it'* just the alternator on this thing, because if it was a drain somewhere, the battery would have taken a lot longer to die, rather than just slowly fizzling out after a few months. So I just came around to get a second opinion on what it is. Oh, she has a mobil phone in her car that she doesn't use, but when I put the new bat in, I disabled the thing because I thought it might be a drain.
Also, if it is the alternator, how much do they generally go for on these cars? In addition, to get the belts off, do you guys have a belt tensioner somewhere? I never really looked at the motor too close, as it'* not my car, but on my SC 3.8, the belts are quite easy to get off.
