    My Bauer 97 Ford Expedition is in the CASA. They said I need to change my alternator and they ask for P38K. Cost is quite steep....any chance I can just pull-out the laternator and have it repaired/reconditioned outside. Have any of you guys done this already? If you can also advise a lower cost parts supplier....please let me know also. Thanks!

    I suggest you pull it out of the casa and have it fixed at an electrical specialist shop such as wizzard in tomas morato in qc, the alternator should be available in american car parts specialists in binondo.

    It's a dealership. They need to order the part from the US because the local Ford plant doesn't build Expeditions. So on top of the extra the "casa" charges for parts, typically 20-40%, you add shipping and extra charges from the "casa" overseas.

    Best to take it outside. You should be able to get a new OEM alternator for about half that price or less.
