    Default Options for replacing alternator.

    Parts for a 1GGZE alternator (27060-42042) are no longer available.

    Does anyone have any experience of what it takes to install a universal alternator?

    I expect a custom bracket and some wiring will be needed, but I'm interested to know what other people have done.

    It most likely the brushes are worn out, they are not hard to replace, and most toyota brushes are the same. you need the number on the alternator then ebay is your friend. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Denso-Ha...frcectupt=true

    You are right. I can get brushes, bearing and other parts. Just not unique parts. I will keep that in mind.

    That said, I did some more googling and have checked the alternator with some more understanding and it is charging correctly (voltage checked at the alternator and the battery show 14.5.V). I think I have a short somewhere that is causing the light to come on.

    I'm still interested in how people have gone with non-factory alternators.
