i noticed the car making a wierd noise . i thought it might be the idler pullies but let me go back a few weeks i noticed that my battery had died. so i bought a new one thinking hey its a few years old. well i had the battery 2 weeks and i go to start it up and nothing no lights nothin . well today i took the alt. out what a pain in a 03 cobra. took it to auto zone to test it . the alternator says it is 135 amp the parts guy says it 110 amp . i am thinking what dummy so he tests the alt. and says it has passed. i believe he did know what he was doing . question is? do i get a after market one . rebuild the one i have . or just buy a new one from ford .

Check the TSB's I thought there was one out about the alternators going bad..

But I could be wrong... If it was me I would just buy one from the parts store..
