        Wish my Bosch alt. was that easy.  I might look at switching over to one if this Bosch gives trouble.
    • Mopar1973Man
      No. It's easy just pull the back cover off and the diodes are held in place with Phillips screws. While your there you can change the brushes too.
    • bcbigfoot
      Depends on which alt., there are two different makes the Bosch and the Denso.  The Denso has bolted in Diodes and the Bosch which I have,  the diodes are welded in (possibly soldered in) not easy to change.  I had the Alt. apart several years ago to rebuild but found it to difficult ( I have rebuilt dozens of alts over the years) decided to take it to the local alt. shop to rebuild. The alt. didn't need diodes but it did need new slip rings, brushes, and bearings.     On the bright side the Bosch diodes seem to be hardy as mine are the original and I have worked heck out of them.  The last 8 years the truck has been loaded with a truck camper and two extra 105 ah agm batteries connected via a 4 gauge charge wire I can see 130 amp charge rates for 20 mins after starting the truck after boondocking for the night, then tapering to 40 amps. for several hrs. afterwards.

      Inside cab leak....If I ever replace the carpet I'm going to rino line the inside.  The only rust I know about is the size of quarter is from leaky windshield.  I'm thinking the rino lined will catch any water and maybe cut down on noise.
