All You Need To Know About Alternator Repair And Replacement

If you’ve ever been stuck on the side of the road with a dead battery, then you know just how important your car’s alternator is. Your vehicle’s alternator provides electrical power to the battery and all other electrical components while the engine is running. When it starts to fail, your car’s battery is no longer being charged, and it may eventually die, leaving you stranded. We will discuss everything you need to know about alternator repair and replacement.

Signs That Your Alternator Needs Repair Or Replacement

There are a few tell-tale signs that your alternator may need to be inspected or replaced soon. These include dimming or flickering headlights, dashboard warning lights, that infamous “clicking” noise while starting the car, and your battery dying or becoming weak while driving. If you notice any of these symptoms, have your alternator checked by a professional auto repair shop.

Types Of Repairs

Sometimes, an alternator can be repaired instead of replaced, depending on the extent of the damage. Some repairs that may be necessary include replacing worn-out brushes or bearings, fixing a faulty voltage regulator, or repairing the wiring or connections. If you’re unsure whether your alternator can be repaired or replaced, our team of experienced mechanics at our auto repair shop can let you know what needs to be done.

Alternator Replacement

If it’s discovered that your alternator needs to be replaced, have the job done as soon as possible.
