How does a car break the alternator bracket. I have a 1995 Chevy Astro Van and it has broken the alternator bracket twice in about a week or 2. I replaced it and it broke again. How does this happen?

do you mean the aluminum bracket holding the alternator broke at the bolt holes? do you know that there should be a steel bracket BEHIND the alternator also? when engine usually replaced, sometimes this steel bracket is not replaced and instead a shorter bolt is used to fasten alternator (3 bolts) to aluminum bracket. there should be a longer bolt which goes from the front of the alternator on the left side, thru the alternator and thru that steel bracket and into part of engine?? this part not clearly understood as explained to me by mechanic husband. he had the same problem and corrected when bracket kit purchased from local Chevy dealer; about $197 in Hawaii. hope this bit helps...

Why would your Bonneville charge somedays and then not charge other days you replaced the alt and battery?

I have a 92 Pontiac and also had similar situation. Sometimes the voltmeter would go to 14volts and other times it would sit at 12volts. When I tested output from alternator to the battery with voltmeter, I did not get a good reading. Upon removal of the alternator to get it replaced, I noticed that the smaller (red) cable that goes from the alternator to the battery was loose in the connector itself. I cut the cable at the connector, stripped the cable some and crimped on a new connector. Reattached to alternator and put alternator back into vehicle. All has been fine since. Hope this may fix your problem.
