It is VERY rare that an alternator will produce more voltage. normal alternator voltage range is about 13 to 15 volts. It is not impossible that it will go over 15 volts, but highly unlikely. As for the price and the exact job time, hard to tell since i don't use same currency and we don't have hyundai santros where i live, but looking at the model on google, i'd say the alternator is a pain to get out of the hood and requires alot of other parts to be removed just to get it in/out. As for the alternator itself, if the price is too high, you can always check for rebuilt ones or even have yours rebuilt. Usually when voltage is the problem, the part in fault on the alternator will be the regulator pack on the end of the alternator and in most cases can be changed easily, but finding the regulator pack to buy can be hard and sometimes will cost as much or more than a rebuilt alternator on some models. So best bet is to start by checking under the hood to see where the alternator is and how to get it out. If you can't see the alternator easily, chances are it'll be a pain to get out of there and take a few hours of labor. If so, then price would be justified. I've seen mazdas before that needed to have the engine moved a bit just to get the alternator out, or like renault 5 that the easiest way to get alternator out is to cut a hole in the floor on passenger side, cause if not the whole engine needed to be out of the car to change the alternator. So like i said, in some cases, changing something simple like an alternator can require ALOT of work.

I guess all services you need is replacement of filters, Oil, spark plugs if not recently changed
Belt replacement is worth at 90K, but price is too high! check this link:
it requires one hour work! or even less
other than this, if you have a service light on, either remove battery pole for a while to reset it, or ignore it and will disappear wft. some time!!!

I have recently purchased a Santro XL 2007 model but did not get a copy of owner's manual since the last user misplaced it. Where can i get a copy of it?

Dear Sir,
For user manual you will get it from hyundai but it is very long procedure, you have to visit any authorized service center and give application to them with sum amount of DD then they will send it to company then you will get it , may it will take months and more, better option is go to service center and request them to give santro manual book for a Xerox make a copy keep with you as a manual or you can go for new one.Thanks

Some do need a square drive to apply pressure to the idler. But why should you need to pay for one?

Have you asked what's up with the alternator? often it's just the regulator that needs replacing - or the brushes. See HERE for examples. Too many are scrapped just for want of these.

If they haven't got the tools, take it somewhere that does know what they're doing (and buy a belt online while you're at it).

Thanks for using Fixya!
