Can a Turbo alternator be rebuilt?

Is it possible to have someone rebuild my alternator, or is it too complicated? Cause I was reading up on how the Bosch alternator system works and all about the warning lamp that has to have current before it can start the alternator and the B and D- and D+ terminals and all that, it seems like its a bit too complicated, please tell me because I'm gonna take it out tomorrow and I need to have my car driveable by Friday.

Also, if anyone has a spare alternator they want to sell for a 1986 944 turbo, please tell me.

I believe the older, non-turbo cars do not have the same alternator, nor would they fit correct? I wanted to do the test that the Haynes manual says to do by sticking a screwdriver in the test hole but on mine I can't get to it because of the back cover on it, can I take the alternator out and then have NAPA or Autozone take a look at it and test it to see if it's good?

Thanks for the help.

Yes, it can be rebuilt.
Yes, NAPA or Autozone etc... can test it, if they know how.
Yes, I have a spare if you cant find one closer to you.
75 914 - Undecided.
80 931 - Gone, but not forgotten.
72 914 - old toy- sold.
And a whole bunch of German scrap metal shaped like 924's.

Old enough to know better, and stupid enough to do it anyway!
