i start my jimny then it sounds like the alternater belt is squeeking and the lights go dimm , for instance i had the blowwers on full and when they squeeking started they nearly went off from lack of power , as i rev the car there is no difference but as i drive it the power comes back and goes again , does this sound like the alternator , also if i switch my e/windows shut when they are already shut it nearly kills the headlights.

ive taken it to the car spairs shop and he tested it , it charges when on tick over but when revved it doesnt charge and looks like its seizing up on high revs , we got a smell of burning rubber , so it looks like a new one is required ,
do you know if i can get the same alternater off any other suzuki , we dont have any jimny breaking around here.

Do you know what engine you have?
The G13B engines are common to the later Samurai and early Swift models.

Hi there,

If you've not sourced a new alternator yet, give your nearest Eurocarparts a tinkle as they have had some unbelievable cheap deals on alternators and starters.

I have not bought one as I'm fotunate enough that my partner's step dad is a starter and alternator re-conditioner! He's in Southend where we are, so if you're in Essex let me know and he'll undoubtedly sort you out cheaper than a new unit.
