Remove the belt to see if the whine goes away first. Then determine which device has a rough bearing or too much play in the pulley. If it appears to be the power steering check the fluid level. or if you still have it put the old alternator back on. The offending device will vibrate so you could listen to each one with a stethoscope made from a piece of hose. enjoy your vehicle it sounds like you take care of it.
you have to move the serpinteine belt adjuster then use a socket on the screw and push down and it will rotate to remve belt, look in the under hood or accross the front of the raidator and you will see a belt diagram.
I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.
Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.
Hiya...the factory-installed keyless remote control are installed in most Equinoxes IF SO equipped with this option that year.
However, it's difficult to get "true factory-installed" keyless feature in your Equinox ....but new 2008-2009 Equinoxes built this year now comes with standard keyless remote and yes, new option is remote STARTER feature (that option is identified by a black wire found inside the rear-right quarter window with thin metal line surrounding that interior window to receive signal from remote starter fob)
At least you can find after-market keyless remote control at your local retail store.
