Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
Assuming that diagnosis of overcharging is correct, one has to be careful with replacing the regulator.
It is very easy to get a wrong regulator, older styles that have often no indication or partnumbers won't work 'cause this Malibu's regulator does some communication with the onboard computer. D748 or D749 are the ones that will work.
With this type of alternator only removing the plastic cover is needed to get access to regulator (black unit in which plug connects)

What do you mean overcharging? Put a volt meter on battery...It should be about 14.5 volts. Since you already replaced the regulator (inside the alternator) The only thing left is that the new regulator is bad. Easy to replace...place paperclip through hole in back to hold brushes until fully assembled then remove.
