Good morning Chris, sounds like it might be planned that way.Morning all, I get to put an alternator in my wife's cousins Kia sorento car thing this morning so they can leave. I have two complaints, first why does everyone's car break down when they come visit and why is this alternator a 3 hour job. You should never have to take half the car apart to do an alternator.
2016, I probably could have done it in an hour but I took my time. About two and a half hours. Glad it wasn't older, they redesigned it to fix a lot of the problems with getting parts off. This is also eith putting it up on the lift. Would probably take 3 plus laying on the ground. I went in through the wheel well snd from the bottom.How long did it take Chris? Also, what year Surrento?
