The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator. It's better to replace the whole alternator then to just replace the regulator. The regulator and other parts like the bearing all have about the same amount of life time, unless the battery is weak which can put extra taxes on the regulator. Good luck and hope this helps.

In my case the switch(off/on)was not turning off all the way sooo,i just replace the sw.I did the same thing as you w/battery.Sometimes just think about the last thing you messed with-go backwards on &back.
