My battery and ebrake light have been on lately and I finally went to look, 2 days and driving a few miles tops with the light on intermittent. The damn thing to the alternator wasn’t even really connected! All my fault though so I'm over it, plus I made it back to the garage with no issues before realizing!

So here’s the big question, new alternator or can this rear post just be replaced? It’s on 03 wrx so replacing the alternator seems like a good option but not necessary.

I’m going to try to pull off what I think is burnt bushings and go from there for now
