BMW Alternator (170A) - Valeo 12317836592
  • BMW Alternator (170A) - Valeo 12317836592

Rebuilt to factory specifications

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 Valeo 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.
