You can buy a Bosch rebuilt alternator from your auto supply store. Generally they cost around the $100 - $200 range.
The regulator is internal to the alternator! Just replace the alt. The alternator has an internal regulator that can be replaced by itself; however, when there is an issue with the alternator, it often involves diodes in alternator instead of or in addition to the regulator. better repair shops will often take an alternator to an automotive electrical repair shop for same-day rebuilds, with the value much higher than a cheap rebuild in a chain parts shop, and hundreds less than a dealer replacement. You want Bosch or your own Bosch rebuilt
If it's properly connected, it's just worn-out. When you get it replaced, make sure you get a new one and not a rebuilt alternator. I had a brand new Bosch alternator put in my 1995 Skylark about 4 years ago and it's worked like a charm ever since.
does it have a belt driven alternator ? you might be able to run it off the alternator like the jetta diesels do or any diesel for that matter but you may have to resize the alternator pulley to fine tune the readout. bosch alternators are used by vw but it gonna cost $$$. hope this helps
Absolutely. It will go right in. The only thing you want to be careful of is the alternator--if there's a Motorola alternator on the donor car, make sure to take the Motorola voltage regulator from under the back seat and the wiring that runs between them unless you want to swap the alternators, which isn't hard. If there's a Bosch on both cars, you're golden.
Try a Bosch alternator,,,,,,,really works Make sure the belt is not slipping. Also, troubleshoot before replacing parts in the dark - that is expensive and fruitless.
Has to be 1990 to 1993 storm 22, no prism ( same size motor ) then there is 2 differant ones for that model a Bosch that's 75 or 85 amp and Nippondenso this one is 65 or 75 amps this one is 10 amps lower then the Bosch Be careful of the connector. The Nippondenso type connector has circuitry built into it which is prone to failure. See link for more info: ***http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3828/is_199906/ai_n8860044/*** Make sure you have alternator with proper connection or replacement alternator harness connector. I have been researching this for days, and am getting my alternator from RockAuto.com. Just search by vehicle, and verify proper alternator.
Here is how my [http://www.themotorbookstore.com/caravan.html 94 Dodge Caravan Manual] says to do it. 3.0l Engines The 3.0L engines were equipped with either the Nippondenso or Bosch alternators. 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.2. Install a 1/2 in, breaker bar in the tensioner slot. Rotate counterclock- wise to release belt tension and remove poly-V belt.3. Remove the alternator mounting bolts (2)4. Remove the wiring and remove alternator.To Install:5. Position the alternator onto the engine, then install the wiring.6. Set the alternator against the mounting bracket and install the mounting bolts.7. Rotate the tensioner counterclockwise and install poly-V belt.8. Connect the negative battery cable. 3.3L and 3.8L EnginesThe 3.3L and 3.8L engines were equipped with the Nippondenso alternators. 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.2. Remove the alternator drive belt, by relieving the tension on the dynamic tensioner3. Loosen the nut on the support bracket at the exhaust manifold, do not remove it.4. Remove the alternator tensioner/power steering bracket bolt.5. Remove the tensioner stud nut and remove the tensioner.6. Remove the alternator mounting bolts.7. Remove the power steering reservoir from the mounting bracket, do not disconnect the hoses, and position it out of the way.8. Remove the alternator support bracket bolts, Remove the intake plenum to alternator bracket bolt and remove the alternator support bracket from the engine.9. Remove the alternator from the engine and disconnect the electrical leads.To Install:10. Install the alternator in position on the engine and connect the electrical leads.11. Install the alternator support bracket, tighten the retaining bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm). Install the power steering reservoir on the mounting bracket.13. Install the alternator mounting bolts, tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).14. Install the tensioner and tensioner mounting stud. Install the retaining nut on the exhaust manifold.15. Install the alternator belt, insert a 1/2 in. extension into the square hole in the tensioner and turn the tensioner. Tighten the tensioner bolt.16. Connect the negative battery cable.

With a Bosch rebuilt which is guaranteed, (shop around) and about $150-200 Samoans, labor is about two hours from a good mechanic, here in Maine we get it done about $280.00 total. VVVVVVVVVVVVVroooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!
Look under the back seat, on the other side of the car from the battery. That's where VW put it at the factory. If you have a Motorola alternator, it's a little silver box. If you have a Bosch, or a generator, it's a black box.
check out AUDIDIY.com or...... 1. Take off accessory belt 2. Take off belt tensioner (provides much more room to work with, I have big hands) 3. Unscrew cooling fan (bottom alternator bolt will not come out with fan in place) 4. Uncrew top and bottom bolts 5. Unscrew rear nut, detach clip. 6. Check which alternator you have, will most likely be a bosch 90amp or valeo 120amp. 7. Get new part and put it all back together. Hope that helps
The voltage regulator in the alternator has a rectifier circuit with diodes. When one of the diodes burns our the alternator emits EMP's (electromagnetic pulses) Which are picked up in your speed sensor wiring. These EMP's confuse the transmission computer and causes all sorts of trouble. If left unrepaired, and you continue to drive it, You may damage the transmission. Furthermore, the voltage regulator controlls the current to the transmission solenoids. It can cause them to be underpowered (malfunctioning) or overpower them to damage them. In an Isuzu rodeo with an American transmission(4L30E), using an aftermarket alternator (wrong voltage regulator in it) can burn out the Bosch electronic transmission control unit(TCU). The max voltage is set too high. The Max voltage output should be 14.2v. with lights on, A/C on and all accessories running. There's more. But you get the idea.
The Bell housing on the engines are located in slightly different areas. Thus the Altenator was relocated. The Super Beatle Altenator is 3 bolt, and smaller. HOpe this helps.. Reximus Manning. There are two alternators for Volkswagen Beetles: the Bosch AL82X, and the Motorola abomination they threw on there for a while when Bosch couldn't make enough AL82X to meet VW's needs. They're the same size, so if you've got a 74 SB and a 73 alternator, go ahead and install it Since the sheetmetal is the same between the two, you're fine. (If you were moving an alternator from a 72 to a 74, you'd have to switch the backing plates because VW changed the fan shroud that year, and the backing plates are different.)
The voltage regulator is located on the back of the alternator. Just unscrew the two screws that mount it to the alternator and it falls right out. This is a five minute removal job, and you DON'T have to get under the car. One of the regulator's two brushes is probably worn out. Order a new unit or, if you are adventurous, simply replace the brushes. If you order a new one, it is best to go with a Bosch. Sometimes the cheap ones don't fit!
bosch 15716 and bosch 15718 are the same exact sensor, the difference is the length of the wiring the 15718 has a longer wire. Both sensors would go before the catalytic converter. 15717 goes after.

I have a 1999 VW Jetta GLS 4 cylinder 2.0liter SOHC New Body Style. My Alternator died, according to the technician at the VW Dealer. The electrical system diagnostics done by the tech indicated that the alternator was producing only 10amps and should be producing something like 14 amps. Backing up a bit; during the morning of the failure, my battery light went on. Later that night, I noticed that all interior lighting (including instrument dash-board lights) went dim. Additionally, the brake, ABS, airbag, etc. lights went off and a beeping noise occured. Long story short, my car started to sputter and eventually died on the highway. When I tried to start the car, the engine would barely turn over and the instrumentation lights flickered rapidly. I called around and found that PEPBoys or Advanced Auto Parts had Bosch alternators that fit my car for like $250. Bosch alternators at VW Dealer Parts Department costs $500 minimum. I'm not sure if it's the same one, but the VW guy on the phone said "Bosch". You do your own reasearch. Labor is 1.5 hours. Total from VW Dealer was around $750.00. I'd like to hear the experience of others as well.
