Alternator is over charging how do you fix it?

It depends on the year of the vehicle. Newer (late 60s/early 70s on) had "internal regulator alternators", so the alternator needs to be replaced. Older cars have a regulator, usually mounted on a fender well, the fire wall, or the radiator support which canb be replaced independently of the alternator.

The regulator is in the engine computer not the alternator.
