just replaced my alternator. the f**kin thing died on me in the middle of f**kin nowhere. had to borrow a battery which just had enough juice to get me home then spent 1 hour looking for a spare one in all my parts and another 2 hours installing it in the dark and the rain in my f**kin driveway so i could drive the f**kin thing 2day. *milkshake* of a night <_>
