Had new air conditioner replaced August 2015 had battery

Customer Question

had new air conditioner replaced August 2015
had battery replaced around six months later
had trouble with steam coming out and had it taken care of around a month ago
upon getting the car back --when starting the car I hear a chirping sound once I
drive the noise would go away--I spoke to my mechanic and he first tightened the
belt and a week later I took the car back to him and he replaced the belt
Then the chirping noise was still there but louder
He took the car back and now tells me it is the alternator and if I do not repair it
and I do not mind the noise it will not harm the car if I do replace the alternator
the cost was $170 I really trusted this mechanic --I am an older woman who knows
nothing about car repairs and am on a fixed income from social security --now I do not know what to do

Hi there,

I will agree with your mechanic, so you can continue to trust him.

He sounds honest, wants to look after you, and wants you to come back if needed.

A bit like me, few and far between.

I think his offer is good if you take it on.

Keep an ear on the noise, and if it does become worse , see him as necessary.

I hope this helps you.

Kind regards
