As above

Need a good alternator for a facelift EK9. Not necessarily looking just for used

Does anyone know a new replacement which fits and works from another car?

I found a place that advertise this alternator and they’ve cancelled my order reporting that the manufacturer no longer makes it

At the end of my tether so far with this car so any help appreciated

Cheers, John

I’m up for a second hand one at this point. I’ve took it apart blindly not knowing what I’m doing exactly

The brushes are worn on the voltage regulator so I’ll replace that but would rather a new alternator as I snapped 2 of the wires a bit short coming from the stator to the terminals

Would like another alternator either working or for parts now that I know how to take them apart and put them back together

I would assume, first of all, that any b series should fit.

Even if it housing doesn't line up, I think you should be able to swap the internals into your old housing.

yes any B series alternator will fit as long as it has the correct 4 pin plug on facelift models. Try finding the correct one though its a nightmare. I have ordered the parts needed to repair it now so will report back if successful. I was preffering a replacement unit as its 55 quid just for the parts I needed to fix it anyway

Are you on the faceballs? I'm sure the typical breakers should have 1 ready to sell. Though no specific names I can recommend atm
