Q: I want to know my stock alternator amps.

asked by on

Hi, I wanna know what my vw jetta 2013 stock amps are. I tried looking on google but I found nothing so I came here.

My car has 67000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there. It looks like your vehicle is most likely equipped with a 140 amp unit. It would probably be best to contact an authorized Volkswagen dealer to confirm this. A qualified professional from YourMechanic can assist with an alternator replacement if necessary.
