Alternator

I have a 2008 shelby gt500 and the alternator went bad. Has anyone had problems with theirs?

No problems yet brother. How much is the damage? Is it a dealership only part?

I have ext warranty so only had to pay deductible which was $100. It would've been like $600.

They had to "special order" it. Right, give me a break. Good thing I had ext warranty.

I heard Its common to have alternators go bad on 07-09 Shelbys. My friend's alternator went out about 2 months ago. He has a 07.

It may be similar to the issues we have with 03/04 cobras. Overspun from the factory and those of us who add lowers fry them in no time. I went to an oversize metco pulley on my alt and haven't had any issues since

Did you notice any symptoms prior to it going bad? My 03 mustangs alt went bad within 20k miles and all of the sudden I was driving and smelled it burning...

None whatsoever. I replaced the battery first thinking that would solve the issue but turned out to be the alternator.
