Does anyone know where I can find an alternator for a 92 BMW 325i? It is a 90Amp Bosch Alternator. The part # is 0 120 469 969. If anyone could recommend a good place to have it rebuilt I would consider that as well.

Thanks-

If you need a used one, this guy sells one from his '94 325i:

Otherwise, I recomment repairing it locally (go to yellowpages.com and type alternator in the search field and your location). Many car electrical shops do that. It may be the worn-out brushes or a blown voltage regulator (30$ to repair), or DIY for 20 bucks. If diode is shot - you're looking at 80$.

I wouldn't recomment buying a rebuilt alternator from autozone.com or discount auto parts - they sell cheap remanufactured ones that don't last long (Bosch 90Amp is around 300$).

Don't forget to test your battery (take it to autozone or similar and test for free). Deffective battery can kill your alternator as well.

Thanks - I was able to have it rebuilt at a local shop for $55 instead of forking out $212 for a rebuilt!!
