It would be nice to know some more details, at the least, year and mileage would be good. Was any service performed recently or is this a factory issue?

The aftermath? Did a roadside tow truck get it to a dealer? Were there more nuts and bolts to tighten? Assembled December 24th or June 30th? Or any day just before a holiday? C'mon man. You can't do that to us. "Need the info!" </Dr. Evil from Austin Powers>

That’s is the worst way to present an issue in a forum. But we will wait patiently for some more info. We understand you are busy and may be trying to get some alternate transportation at present.

Agreed, "Bay's" posts are all very short and cryptic, not buying in on the weird sudden problems this poster wants us to believe he has encountered.

I think Bay is just doing a public service announcement warning us to watch out for his "altenator" that fell off and is laying in the road. It might cause "a terrible accident" if you hit it.

I can't think of how the alternator could have fallen out, maybe OP meant it wasn't tightened? But I'm not assuming anything yet, at least waiting a few days for followup, OP could be busy.

If they come back that they have a hybrid then we'll know for sure, since the hybrid's alternator has never had a single issue, ever.
