Alternator Repair Service & Cost

What is the Alternator all about?

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.

Alternator

Keep in mind:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

How it's done:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. Mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

How important is this service?

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.

Rodney had his work cut out for him with replacing both the valve cover and housing unit gaskets on my 335i coupe. I was a bit nervous having a new person touch my car. But he answered all my questions with confidence and showed me the old brittle gaskets afterwards. I felt confident in his abilities by his apparent knowledge of BMW's in general. Now that I've been driving the car for several weeks with no issues, I can confidently say that Rodney did fine work and I will certainly request him for any future work on my baby.

Jonathan was AWESOME! He showed up in an Audi to service my BMW, which I thought was good for me, if he's driving a foreign car, he can certainly work on mine. Did a great job, will continue to use and recommend Yourmechanic....... Thanks so much, John C
