Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

How do I change the alternator in a 2000 buick Le Sabre?

The dealership wants to charge me 500 for labor and the cost of repair, but i've looked online and can get an alternator for 200 so paying 300 on labor seems ridiculous and everyone comments that it's not hard to do?

I suggest that you get a manual (inexpensive like haynes are about $20) Take a good look at how and where it's mounted and plan on how it will come out (can you get to the bolts, where will it make it's exit after its off the engine etc.) If it seems reasonable and you have some mechanical experience, Likely you can do the job. Even if you need to buy the tools, the end total will be far lower than what you have been quoted, and the tools will still be there with the manual so you can do other stuff as well.

If you want to spend 16 to $17.00 for a haynes repair manual for that car, it gives a step by step procedure on how to do it. You can get one at an auto parts store.

Since replacing the battery in my 2000 Buick Le Sabre it will not hold a charge. help


is this why you changed the battery,if so did you have the charging system checked first before replacing the battery.it could be the alternator causing the problem and the car running off of the battery until it gets to low on voltage to run the car.the other thing is you could have a voltage draw on the system as well.first you need to have the charging system checked out.

A dealership is trying to charge me $665.00 to replace my alternator with an rebuilt one!!!! this is the dealership i bought the car from 13 months ago!!! are they trying to rip me off?


The Stealership, I mean Dealership will always charge higher than a Independent Shop. I would find a Repair Shop recommended by a friend or AAA and have it repaired there. A rebuilt Alternator from AutoZone with a Lifetime Warranty will cost you $189.00 plus probably two hours labor at $90.00 an hour average at a Independent Shop. You should be spending no more than $400 total. So yes you are paying too much, but Dealerships always charge more because of their high overhead.

I have a 2001 buick le sabre. The rear widow does


That is the problem....however the cable spun off the spool and you need to buy the power window assy. On line it was a good fair price (about $35-50) it has 3 studs that holds it to the inside door and 2 bolts at the window that secures the assy to the window. All work can be completed in 30 mins..
