To supply your car's electrical needs and charge the battery, the 2009 Toyota Corolla alternator is responsible for generating electricity.

How Does an Alternator Work?
An alternator has an internal rotating assembly that's driven by the serpentine belt over the alternator pulley. Inside, a set of magnets spins around a coil, creating an electrical field with alternating current. It's changed to direct current so your car's electricity-consuming parts can process it, and some of the power that's generated is stored in the battery to start your car again.
When to Change Your Alternator
If you drive a 2009 Corolla, alternator repairs aren't very common. However, should they occur, timely replacement is crucial. You'll notice symptoms including a battery light on the dash, overly bright or dim lights, odd performance by some electrical parts, a burning smell, or a whining under the hood. As well, your car can quit while driving or the battery could be dead.
2009 Toyota Corolla Alternator Replacement Cost
Although it's extremely important, an alternator replacement is relatively inexpensive. It can take an hour or two to change, although some DIYers might want to consider hiring a mechanic. The parts range in price from $150 to $300 depending on the trim level and brand you select.
