A BMW 318I arrived for alternator replacement

The alternator (which is bolted to the engine block) is a belt-driven electrical generator that maintains the battery in the state of charge.

Air-cooling of the alternator is most BMW models and nearly all cars.

A faulty alternator can cause many problems – from battery discharging to an engine problem.  Your battery light charging system indicator will usually illuminate to warn you of a possible failure.  This may indicate a fault in the charging system.

It is common for an alternator to fail progressively.  The symptoms will present as follows;

  • You may notice the instrument panels lights dim at night.
  • Radio flickers.
  • Headlights flicker.
  • Lacking power when lowering or raising your electric windows.

When the alternator can no longer charge the car battery and you may not re-start your car.  However, before arriving at a conclusion, it is advisable to check that your battery is not faulty too.
