There are all sorts of things that can kill an alternator.
Any type of leak where the fluid get on it.
A bad battery, or corroded battery cables.
I could have been a poorly rebuilt unit that was put on the first time.
You should probably mention to the shop that does the work, that you had it replaced 2 years ago, and ask that they keep their eyes open for anything that may have caused it to fail so soon.
