Hi Guys

 

This car is starting to give me more and more grief.

 

This time it seems the alternator is dead.  Smoke coming out from it.

 

Does anyone have the Honda part number or know where I can get a replacement/repair at reasonable cost?

 

Would this fit?

So the car died and recovery came out.  THey hooked up a jump starter to it and white smoke started to come out of the alternator.

 

Does this sound like the regulator has packed up?  Is this an easy change if so.  Where can i get a regulator from?

 

Cheers.
