View Full Version : E65 Alternator Remove Replace
06-14-2012, 06:41 PM
I have a 2005 745i with a failed alternator. My BMW shop (not dealer) wants $1,200 to replace. The wanted $1,100 to replace the guibo coupler and I did it myself (with a little help from Bimmerfest) for about $150. Looks like a rebuilt alternator will run just over $100, so I want to do it myself, but can't find any info on changing it. Anyone know how to? Thanks.

Dude dealer only gives u 2 1/2 year warranty for an alt. & it is also a rebuild! Reason why I went with an autozone rebuilt because its lifetime warranty! & at the half price of what dealer would charge! Research DIY section plenty of people have DIY on this topic!
