Just make sure you get a Nissan alternator from either Andreas or a Nissan dealership...the Schucks/Checker/Autozone alternators are pretty much junk. I went thru 7 of them, before I got my core back from Autozone and went to Nissan..not a problem since...if you have any questions you can e-mail me
