Post Calling all spare alternators!!!
Hey gang,

So, my charge light has been intermittently going on and off for the past two-ish months. Finally took the car in to get tested, the alternator is only working at 44% and in turn is charging and draining the crap out of my battery.

I have a spare battery, but I do no have a spare alternator.

So for anyone in or around the GTA; I will not hesitate one bit to accept the alternator you want to give me, as long as it fits on my 1996 GS 1.8L. I in return will be ever so thankful. Honestly I will. More importantly, the wife will because she will get her car back and no longer have to car pool. Well, maybe I will be more thankful than her because I will no longer have to hear her nag about the fact I have her car and she has to car pool... Either way, it will be a win win for my wife and I.

Please and thanks,

Shane

It would probably cost as much to ship as it would cost to fix yours.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

well, depends on how quick he needs them, but if by some point we could meet in Ottawa, I could meet him on my way down to Niagara, but I don't plan on going that way until Easter...

Nightshade saves the day again. It's what I do, keep the Ontario MX-3 dream alive.
