Default Hi Guys The headlights are Flikering

I have an 04-Civic with 70k KMS and I just noticed the Headlights lights are flikering. I had this on a GM car and the cause was the rectifier in the alternator was defective would this be the same cause on a Civic

Next question if I have to remove the alternator do I have to remove the AC compressor

Dam I thought Hondas are suppose to last for ever an alternator going defective is kind of silly after 70k km

If you rev it up a lot the alt can die young. No need to remove AC comp. Get system voltage checked first. Should be 14.14.5V fast idle & no accessories.
