Replace Altenator 93 Nissan 300Z-How hard? Hours?

I am wanting to know how hard it is to replace an altenator on a 93 Nissan 300Z?

I've replaced a few on various vehicles but not this particular one.

A friend wants me to help him out...but before answering I wanted to find out the difficulty and any tips?

What would a shop charge?

I am a 300zx over for 5 years now. Replaced a few alternators in many other z's too.

For a newbie expect a couple hours. Remove the radiator and hoses.. will make it much easier.

Expect a shop to charge atleast 2 hours. Shop rates are around $90-$125 an hour!

Battery not charging showing on the display for the second time after I changed the battery once and the altenator twice. What could the problem be?

Take a good look at the alternator plug. The tabs on the inside should all look the same. Also a lot of corrosion can cause no contact. Replace the plug if necessary.

My 93 f150 dies when I turn on the headlights. Is it the alternator?

it could be the altenator but I would take a voltage meter and check to see if your altenator is putting out 14 volts when truck is running before you spend the money on a new altenator.

I have a 93 maxima that needs an altenator.when i went to purchase there was an installation alert issued on altenator for some problem with the charging system. anyone know what this is.

Those are supplied with the alternator because the part number fits more than one application. If it does not appear to involve your application - ignore it. There are a few precautions listed for all alternators - like disconnect the battery. But don't worry about information that does not seem to apply to you.

Driving lights are weak,Getting hard to start and the heating fan only works on high.

Probably a couple of things wrong here.

  1. The heating fan switch is broken.
  2. Have the battery checked out and the altenator.
  3. Halogen bulbs do get weaker over time so you might want to replace them if the battery and altenator check out ok.
