Speaking of alternators, has yours been upgraded to a Denso.

A loose original alternator on an '03 is asking for catastrophic failure. The bearings were known to fail and lock up the gear tower taking the whole motor with it. :o

ReCycled, I will have to look at the alternator because I don't know if it has been changed (though I doubt it has.) Thanks for the heads up!
