C & L Used Auto Parts
This is the spot to go. I was looking for months for a doom light for my car. Certain used auto parts didn't have my car model year. I even call the dealership and they wanted to charge me $250 (FOR A DOOM LIGHT!!!!) I would rather get in my car in the dark. So eventually I got tired of doing that and looked up C&L Used Auto Parts and gave them a call. I told them what I was looking for and he told me $20 right off the top. I was thinking he didn't even look or put me on hold to check and I know i didn't want to waste gas for a blank trip if they didn't have it. I asked what time you close and went down there. Within less than 30mins the gentleman had the part that I wanted. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!I really want to commend the employees that actually go out in the yard to pull the parts. Because each one that I saw when they came in their shirts were soaked with sweat. Also the employees in the office was nice and willing to serve without hesitation. This is what I call "GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE"

Tips & Advices
In some cases, it's worth repairing an old alternator. If some parts go bad, they can be inexpensive to repair. For example, alternator belts can be quite cheap, and parts and labor for handling this repair will run you between $100 and $125 for most vehicles, which is significantly less than the cost of a new alternator. If the total cost of the repair exceeds 50 percent of the cost of replacing the alternator, it makes sense to invest in a new alternator.
If your car's alternator has gone bad, you may be able to squeeze in a short journey, but the car's battery will drain very quickly without the alternator's support. Stop-and-go traffic will place even more pressure on the battery, and so will using auxiliary items such as the radio, air conditioning, heater, windshield wipers, and headlights.
A one-wire alternator is a type of alternator that can be easily put into place with the installation of a single wire. The key benefit that these alternators bring is that they are simple to install.  However, many one-wire alternators provide low output when the car's engine is idle, and this can burden the car's electrical system if you're idling at a red light with the headlights and stereo on. Some one-wire alternators also require you to rev the car's engine to a certain rpm to activate the alternator and begin the charging process.
The most common cause of alternator failure is a weak battery. Your car's alternator works very hard to keep your car's battery fully charged, and, if the battery is weak, it can put a great deal of stress on the alternator. The alternator will increase its output to try and keep the battery charged, and this will eventually overtax the alternator and cause it to fail prematurely.
Your alternator's regulator is an automotive part that monitors and oversees the process by which your car's battery is charged. The regulator also supports the alternator by reducing the stress that is placed on the alternator's drive belts, tensioning pulley, and bearings. The regulator may be located inside or outside of the alternator's housing.
