Alternator issue!

Less than 1yr ago spent $200 to repair it - under warranty but there is a new guy - he wants money for labor.

Had the car checked and found out the regulator is bad. Another shop asked to file a complain with B of Automotive in Calif.

It is hard to reach the alternator so that I can take it out myself.

Junk yard sells for $25 but there is no guarantee that it works.

I need the car - battery is draining.

What do u guys advice me?

Buy a new alternator and install. Rebuilt ones tend to fail fast as do some new ones. Hopefully you're not overloading it's 55 amp load with some souped up stereo equipment.
