1996 Accord. Intermittant alternator

Has anyone replaced the brush on a 1996 accord alternator? While driving I turned on the blinker. The tach would drop to zero than back to current RPM at the same frequency as the blinker. Discovered the alternator was not charging the battery. With a volt meter on the battery I can tap the alternator and the voltage will jump to 14.4. I suspect the brush needs replacing. I do not know the manufacturer of the alternator. The only sticker on it has re manufactured printed.

I think an automotive store may have brushes listed for your specific vehicle application. Many years ago I went this way for the Subaru alternator brushes and as far as I remember it went fairly well.

Good luck,

If I were you, I'd just replace the whole alternator. The brush might not be the only thing wrong with it.
