Flush it first with LOTS and LOTS of WD-40 first before taking it to the alternator shop. Doing so has cured more than a few alternators that were seemingly dead from too much mud. You'll need to take the belt off so you can spin it around to really effectively flush it with the WD-40. WD-40 is excellent at this particular task, better at this than lubrication and it won't harm any of the electronics inside.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
