Flyingsheep is cool... so far.
Spilled PS fluid into alternator

So I accidentally spilled P/S fluid into my alternator. Do I need to replace it now?

use some degreaser on it, and thoroughly clean it

dont start the engine

clean it and use compressed air to dry it or a leaf blower

oil damages alternators, water doesnt, water dries oil doesnt

Just do what PR CB7 said. Degreaser, then water, then dry it. Let it sit in a dry place for at least 24 hours to ensure that it's fully dry. If it's wet and you try to start the car, you will probably burn it out. THEN you'll need to buy a new one.

lexus sc300 pours p/s fluid into its alternator, they'll still make it 50,000+ miles like that
