Purchased a alternator and within a year it failed. It started making a rattling noise on my way home from work, I couldn't tell what it was I thought maybe it was a heat shield or something and then I heard a loud bang.
Pulled over opened the hood and come to find out it was the alternator. The fan broke apart and flew off, cut my upper radiator hose, damage my belt and hit my hood leaving 3 dents which also knocked the paint off. I told one of the managers (Ardmore, OK) what happened and I asked are they liable for damages to my vehicle cause by thier faulty parts?.
She said sorry no.
So I've contacted autozone headquarters and I'm still waiting on a reply. This website won't allow to to post any videos or photos from my phone so just search "autozone alternator fail" on YouTube.
