Just like the title says, my alternator seized up out of nowhere. anyone know if it can be rebuilt or am I on the hook for a new one?

 

Thanks in advance

Pull it apart and see. It used to be about $12 for a kit to rebuild GM alternators. Hopefully it is just a bearing. Good Luck, Rick

 

Or, take it off and take it to a rebuilding shop for an estimate to compare with a new one.

The bearings are replaceable, but not sure if JD offer them.  I'd take it to a rebuilder & let them replace what's needed.

If you're comfortable taking it apart, then by all means do.  It may be more than just a bearing if the rotor hit the fields.  If so, check THIS out.

Most electric motor repair shops will repair alternators, starters, generators, etc.  They would be much cheaper than JD would.  JD would charge you $50 just to drive on their lot.  My opinion of JD brand.

I agree, I have found a rebuilder is your best bet. We haves guy here in town who is quicker, better and less expensive tha parts houses and dealers.
