Interesting.
A new TSB on how to replace the Alternator.
This is interesting since NNA and dealers have steadfastly refused to acknowledge that the Alternator is a big failure item............

It just gonna burn a hole on their pocket.... Parts and Labors. $400ish per murano?

Yes it costs them a bunch for every bad Alt.

But this is why I developed my theory that the Alternators were being fried by cumulative high ambient temperatures.

These things are BURIED in there and they are VERY close to the radiator. In Fact the procedure that this supersedes called for the removal of the radiator.

If I am right, there might be a way to get some fresh air on that Alternator, and prolong it's life.

Of course I could be wrong and the alternators are just a POS.:3:

Very interesting indeed. I believe the Murano's alternator is failing due to defective internal diodes. Nissans have a history of bad alternator bearings, but until now I have not seen any reports of a whining sound characteristic of a bad bearing. So I will go with the silent alternator killer, a bad internal diode (probably due to heat).
