The average cost for a Lexus ES350 Alternator Replacement is between $909 and $1,073. Labor costs are estimated between $428 and $539 while parts are priced between $482 and $534.
In most cases, costs will average between $350−400 for the alternator replacement if no other parts need to be changed. Add another $20 to $50 to your bill if the serpentine belt has to be replaced as well. If you decide to go with dealership parts and labor, expect the bill to climb over $500 in many cases.
The average cost for a Lexus RX350 Alternator Replacement is between $888 and $1,028. Labor costs are estimated between $384 and $484 while parts are priced between $504 and $544.
Additionally, the alternator keeps the battery charged, making it especially vital for your vehicle`s peak performance. Alternators usually last for about 80,000 to 150,000 miles, or at least 7 to 10 years.
Charging output can be tested on a vehicle with a digital voltmeter. A good alternator should produce about 13.5 to 14.5 volts with the engine idling. If the voltage reading is low (12.5 volts or less), it indicates a charging problem but does not tell you what`s causing it.
In some models, they can run as low as $180 and for premium vehicles, they can run over $1,000. The average cost is approximately $500.
Rebuilt Will Cost Less

In this process the broken parts are replaced, hence the term rebuilt. You may get up to a 90-day warranty. Remanufactured alternators still offer some savings, around 25% generally, and are different than rebuilt ones.

In general, it will take about two hours for you to replace an alternator on your own, though this could vary somewhat depending on your knowledge of car mechanics. If you take your car into a shop in order to have the alternator replaced, timing may vary somewhat, and you may have to leave the car for the day.
Replacing an alternator can cost you several hundred bucks at the local repair shop, but it`s one of the simplest repairs you can do at home. With a few tools and about an hour you can swap it out yourself — and keep your dough in your pocket where it belongs.
The average cost for a Lexus ES330 Alternator Replacement is between $399 and $423. Labor costs are estimated between $55 and $69 while parts are priced between $344 and $354.

how can i fix the charging issues from the alternator to battery
ANSWER : We can repair this for you. The best approach is to return the charging system wiring to the original configuration that is documented in the Factory Service Manual. Once the physical wiring is in place, it is a relatively simple matter to use that same diagram to test charging system output and verify operation. Once everything checks out and consistent alternator output is documented, some final checks are needed to be sure there are no phantom loads or parasitic power draw when the vehicle is either on or off. If you desire to restore the vehicle to the original configuration and get the charging system working, please request an electrical component/circuit diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will commence this repair. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

Battery good, alternator good, brand new alternator cable, still not charging.
ANSWER : Hi There,
The first diagnosis of the bad voltage regulator is likely the cause of your charging system not properly charging the battery. When the voltage regulator is not working properly, this may result in the alternator allowing too much power to be delivered to the battery resulting in damaging wires and prematurely sometimes destroying the battery. In other cases it may result in the alternator not supplying enough power to the battery, resulting in undercharging the battery or not charging it at all. In some cases when a battery is too weak or damaged, it may no longer hold a charge for any length of time, in which case the alternator may be doing its job, but the battery is just simply too weak to hold a charge. In either case, I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your vehicle’s charging system.

My power steering rack needs replacing. The part will cost me $989.98 plus the labor $460.00. Is those price fare?
ANSWER : Ouch! that’s a pretty hard hit! unfortunately it may not be out of line. I’m curious about your warranty, however. Many new cars are covered by at least a 5 year / 50,000 mile warranty. If the rack was not damaged by an accident or abuse, it may be covered. If the Toyota dealer is not helpful with questions, there will be a customer service number that you can call to try for some action. Failing that, it may do to get a second opinion. if you contact Your Mechanic, they can send a technician to your home or office to check out your steering rack and make a recommendation.
