thanks for responding. According to the mercedes dealership mechanic they checked the alternator and they were able to turn the alternator pulleys by hand so that it is still showing the alternator is in working order. and yes, it is gas.
Most alternators have regulators built in, if a diode blew you can still turn the alternator but there will be no output. The mechanic should have bench tested the alternator.
