I did my old Vios alternator here:

Kaki Bukit Ave 6, BLK C #01-66
Our Operating hours are:

Phone : 67475823, 67476477
Mobile : 98307738

Took a re-con alternator that last longer than the stock one
The only thing stopping me ending my own life is the lack of knowledge of what happens after that

Assuming your car battery is relatively new, he should actually measure the charging voltage across the battery when the car is idling. The charging voltage should measure higher than 13.5V. If lower, confirm charging system is not charging the battery well. It is likely a alternator problem, but, can be other issue.

Just open the hood, listen to car start and then diagnose as alternator problem is kind of unbelievable.
