Normally it has no dielectric properties at all - usually just a solvent of one sort or another that evaporates after it's done its job of washing away the gunk.
I'm also with "stealership" when it comes to parts. Hyundai dealers around here charge $52 and change for a cabin air filter.
My can of "Hi Tec Electronic Spray" clearly says dielectric to 35,000 volts fast drying in 18 seconds safe for all metals most plastics blaa blaa blaa/.
With the rectifier bridge, diodes etc inside the housing , throttle body or carb cleaner etc might damage and leave residue. Even contact cleaner if you unlucky could do something.
Do you think it's a gasket problem, or simply a matter of bolts loosening up over time? I did find some looseness in mine, as apparently did wymi.
Some portion of my alternator was soaked with oil until I tighten cover bolts.
Much better than the fully soaked alternator above picture with no voltage.
I checked battery terminal's voltage;
when engine stop, 12.8V
when running, 14.4V
That looks normal.
Is it easy to uninstall the alternator from the engine?
Yes, I can do 1 in about an hr on a rack
Do we need to take radiator fan off?
or can be done through tire wheel well cover?
Done from underneath via the right wheel well
What about loosen the belt?
Roll tension arm and flip belt off, same as any other Lambda in Sonata, Santa Fe, Azera, Entourage, Veracruz
Is special tool needed?
NO,, I prefer long 3/8 drive extension with a 19mm flex head impact socket and long breaker bar
If it's easy, I want to uninstall and open and look at the inside of the alternator someday.
Leave yours in, I'll sell you 1 of the 2 I have sitting here at home to play with.. might have 3rd when Hyundai says scrap the part we holding.
