Anyone know of a place that will rebuild alternators around Boston? I can't find a replacement and I'm trying to get the car running again. Or any Pull and Save, U-Pull It type places I maybe could find one.

For many people, replacing the brushes in the alternator will fix their problems for the very low price of a set of carbon brushes.

The EPC shows the brushes and holder as a set part# 27370-75060. Retail price of $19.75 at your local dealer or buy online.

I got a shop near me in Philly. They have rebuilt my R33 alt, my R33 starter as well as countless other JDM stuff. Average rebuild cost for regulator, brushes and bearings is 50-80 bucks.

Also mid 90s dodge intrepids used the same alternator if that helps, I just pulled the internals out of one and put them in mine, same denso part number, but my casing looked better so I just swaped internals.

got any contact information? i found a place in Connecticut but they were quoting me 130 for a rebuild. would this place also slight power increases. I'd like to go from 80 amps to 100 amps.

You know you can use one from a 5SFE, right?
And most are auto, so they have a slightly higher max output.
01 And older auto Camrys should be perfect.

As far as the windshield, pick one up from a yard, any liftback, and possibly the coupes too are the same.
