Alternator went bad - is it OEM?

Typically, if a replacement alternator it will have the rebuilders tag on it, usually a sticker, of some sort.
I *think* it would be best of you contact your dealer, verify the re-call, and find out where you stand in regard to that re-call. If that is a "go" explain that your alternator is "dead" and to save towing/their labor you would like to wander in with it.
It really, in the end, all comes down to the relationship you have with your dealer.
Great if you can snag "a free one", but really, 10 years on (1997-2007) could be called "regular wear and tear".

I'll just call my dealer and find out.
