Expert:  Ron replied 2 months ago.

The labor to remove and replace the alternator call for 2.3 hours . You can get a manufacturer Alternator for about $120 depending the on the source price may very a bit. In order to get a estimate on the AC you are going to need to have the system diagnosed to determine what has failed . The systems pressure will need to be checked as well. The usual diagnosis time for this is one hour.
