My alternator......

....died with no warning on a road trip. Car only had about 35,000 miles on her and was 12 years old.

Just R&R the alternator, put in a new serpentine belt, and replace all of the idler pulleys.

Itís a pain, but it must be done.

Iíve seen idler pulleys seize and start runaway engine compartment fires in these Boxsters.

Good luck.
