BMW Remanufactured 150 Amp Alternator - Genuine BMW 12317508054

150 amp remanufactured alternator, water cooled alternator, does not include seal

If your BMW is running out of power (literally) it's likely due to a worn or damaged alternator. The battery on board the car stores enough power to start the car while the alternator is responsible for powering the car while its running as well as maintaining the batter charge. If the alternator is not charging the battery you will run out of power since the battery alone can't support all of your BMW's functions.

A rebuilt/remanufactured unit from is basically a brand new alternator. The only part used from the original unit in normally the metal cage. All internals and electrical parts are replaced with new factory parts. It will perform the same as the original equipment part did. We often find that OEM remanufactured parts last longer as upgraded/newly designed components are used in place of original parts. Think of the core core charge as link a bottle deposit. It's a fee that the manufacturer charges for ensuring that a core is returned. Once FCP receives the core back to our facility we will refund you for the core charge in full.

Does not come with alternator seal. The seal must be replaced when installing this water cooled alternator, please see p/n 12317507996 alternator seal
