i wanted to test the theory that the 27060-0d110 alternators were all the same, regardless of vehicle model.
since the p/n 27060-0d110 shows up on alternators originally installed in corollas and matrixs and vibes i went to the pick and pull. pick and pull alternators are only 20 bucks and considering how easy it is to pull one i might as well try one out.
if it works in the vibe, awesome; then i'd know to order a denso reman from the toyota dealership with a 1 day arrival time.
if it doesn't work, i'd only be out 20 bucks and some of my time and then end up ordering one from GM and wait the 7-10 day arrival time.
i pulled one out of a 2008 1zz corolla with the same matching 27060-0d110 p/n on the sticker.
it's been well over a week and so far it's been working fine.
