Very easy repair...and now bosch makes an alt that interchanges with a valeo, if that's what you happen have. I did, but the bosch fit fine.

Get that taken care of...you could just do the voltage regulator and hope that does it. The bearings on alts seem to last a while. Mine just failed last week and it was original.
