Go with Doru's advice--the voltage reg and brushes are built together in one unit--with a mirror and a flashlight you can remove the part from the alt without taking the alt off of the car--happened to mine just this way about 60k miles ago and all is well still with 240k miles on the car as of now. If you still having problems with 02 sensor--before replacing the sensor--check for vacuum leaks--there are many places that unmetered air can enter the engine and cause a code that reflects 02 problems concerning fuel metering
