i hear you bro i did mention the belt tension to their service manager and they will take a look at it.. 137 back order does mean something..buddy of mine works for parts and yaris got the most ordered alternator vs other toyota vehicles.. but i did suspect belt tension..
most toyota alternators are made by denso. Denso is available at many parts retailers (carquest I know for sure). I have had 5050 luck getting the correct denso alternator from the aftermarket it is best if you can get the toyota part number and have the store cross it. and btw 137 on BO is very little for a company the size of toyota I have had toyota parts with BO s in the 1000 range. I had a Ford part the other day that had over 2500 on BO
bad alternator eh..i got the exact same noise but like i just posted where these alternators should be a recall coz as of today toyota toronto has 137 including me as back order..
So its viable to replace the Tacoma pulley with a yaris pulley and fab some brackets up to fit the yaris mounting Im looking at costs here... 90 for a used Tacoma alty 16-20 for a yaris alty pulley Several hours of bracket fab. This is POSSIBLY something that Garm might want to look into for a kit. A higher output toyotaDenso alternator kit for the yaris. Hmmm.... I just dropped Garm a message. We
Of a replacement OEM alty Yeah... httplmgtfy.comq2007toyotayarisalternator

This is just ridiculous cant the toyota engineers do any better than this Hell my 86 BMW would get a good 30k miles out of an alternator Ill say it again your 300k mile car is the sole reason I bought my first new car in 20 years of buying cars nothing convinced me more to buy a new yaris like your real world data-point. toyota should make you a star of their ad campaigns.

Quote Originally Posted by wingdood hi I was thinking about buying a solar trickle charger to increase my FE but then I realized that it wouldnt make a difference if the alternator for the yaris was not load sensitive (alternator still runs when the battery is fully charged). Does anyone know for sure if the alternator for the yaris is load sensitive I believe the answer is yes.

The sun needs time and unless you ALWAYS drive between 11am and 2pm... your not getting the best of things. Covering the whole roofhood of my yaris is one of my objectives combined with a deep cycle battery on my way to completely remove the alternator- then I can remove the ac and water pump pulley AND the crank pulley and replace those with electric motors (except the crank pulley of course) Im not sure but if I was going to toss the alternator I might also just trash the AC while I was at it...the same pink wire that goes to the ECU also tees off to the AC amplifier ...OR Id just be happy with what toyota engineered and not make life anymore complicated.

No. Its not controlled by the ECU but it puts out a pulsed signal to the ECM the AC ECU and the DRL to let them know if the alternator is generating power. That output

I only put a month and a half ago 2 bulbs (lead) in the front
YOU WERE RIGHT CTSCOTT I TOOK OFF THE PLUG WITH THE BLACK AND WHITE WIRE WHERE YOU SHOWED IN THE PICTURE AND SOMEBODY HAD DONE SOMETHING BEFORE (CAR WAS BOUGHT USED) THEY PUT THE WIRES BENDED INTO THE PLUG TO MAKE CONTACT.... SO I TOOK EVERYTHING APART OF WHAT WAS DONE BEFORE AND WITH A PLIER I TIED UP THE CONTACTS AND SQUEEZED IT DOWN AND LEFT EVERYTHING HOW ITS SUPPOSED TO GO SO I TURNED THE yaris
I just got my alternator replaced thank god for parents mine was an 07 but i have about 85k miles on it i started having trouble when it rained down here in fl the car wouldnt start then one morning it wouldnt start my parents had it towed to central fl toyota they said it was the alternator. long story short it cost my parents about 800 dollars
There are many threads on this issue but the bottom line is on 07 yaris the voltage regulator within the alternator is prone to corrosion. If you miss having it replaced under warranty there are a few options including 1. Replace the alternator with a junkyard one off a 2008 yaris. 2. Replace the voltage regulator within the alternator. 1 can be found for under 100 if you shop around. Replacement is
800 for a replacement alternator Outrageous A better resource than a toyota dealer for off-warrantee alternator or starter repairs would be a good auto electric shop. They can get repair parts for these units - if worst comes to worst a good guaranteed rebuilt alternator shouldnt cost more than around 300.
Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket part available for the yaris alternator Ive found a site called automotix but cant tell if its legit. the prices are significantly less than toyotas prices.
Theres no timing belt on our yaris. It is chain driven. I think you may be referring to our drive belt. The bolt you speak of sir is the alternator lower bolt It is a bit of a pain to remove. What you need is a extension on your small ratchet. Use a pipe on your 14 drive ratchet or maybe a small torque wrench would work. And push ( anti clockwise) directions. You can purchase the bolt at your local toyota dealer.

just get a 150 A alternator off of anything and wire it up to work. you willjust have to deal with a custom made bracket... if it really has to be bolt on look at toyota engines that have a similar design i.e. 1zz or 2zz its possible that the alternator could be a bolt on or at least bolt on with that alternators bracket
a short causing a fire. By making these connections better many people see as much as a full volt of increase in charging voltage. Also many times youll recover from a hard discharge more quickly than before because current can flow more freely into the electrical system. You also remove strain from the stock wiring when powering a high wattage system. Here are pics of my big 3 install on a 2007 yaris
Power bastards I would recommend installing our Fitzall 220A as an auxiliary alternator on this vehicle. I show no information on the stock alternator for the yaris therefore I wouldn&8217t be able to answer any questions about the plug. If the yaris alternator is tied to the computer in the car installing our Fitzall as a secondary unit will work the best. Mike Savino www.PowerBastards.com High Amp
to get the alternator out so i can get the pulley off... Managed to get the 14mm bolt off- that was a pain. Got the 2 black clips out of the alternator and the wire-stay clip thing... But I dont know how to get the GREY plugclip out of the alternator. Its hard plastic and i cant see any pressure clips to pop it off and i dont want to break it... I saw people had posted the httpwww.etimago.comyarisrepairmanual
