Research on Alternator for BMW 540i

The alternator is in charge of powering your vehicle. While the battery is important, this device is responsible for charging the battery and keeping your BMW 540i's electrical system running. A bad alternator will leave you stuck on the road. Purchasing an alternator is a minor investment, but doesn't have to be that costly.

How An Alternator Works

An alternator contains its own magnetic field, which a network of wires run through. A spinning rotor, mounted on a needle bearing, also helps to induce a current that is directed to all of the electronic components in the vehicle. You'll notice BMW 540i alternator problems if your car doesn't start, or there are issues with your power windows, headlights and interior lights, or radio. The problem is not enough voltage, if any, is getting generated or being distributed.

History of the Automotive Alternator

Magnetic induction was discovered in the 1830s, and alternating current generating systems soon came into being. Alternating current was further utilized in the 1870s with arc lamps and voltage generators. Automobiles didn't feature alternators until the 1960s, when silicon diode rectifiers became a more affordable option. Prior to then, cars had DC dynamo generators that included current-directing commutators.

Replacement Cost

The cost of 2002 BMW 540i alternator replacement ranges from under $600 to nearly $800. Labor is a factor in the replacement of an alternator. Costs also depend on the part you choose, especially if you're opting between a new or rebuilt alternator, or one that has addition functions; for example, a 2001 BMW 540i water cooled alternator will cost in the neighborhood of above $400 for the part.

How Long Does an Alternator Last in a Car?

It's generally accepted that an alternator will last around seven years. The typical unit is designed to run for up to 150,000 miles, but mechanics often see alternators fail at around 80,000 miles. Signs yours is about to go include a loss of electrical function when idling, or dimming headlights or dashboard lights. You might also get an indicator light on your dashboard. Rotor or diode failure, or engine heat, can be causes for trouble.

How Do You Change An Alternator?

An alternator is replaced by disconnecting the cables from the car battery, and removing the wires and cables from the back of the device. The alternator belt also has to be removed. So do two retaining bolts. The new alternator is installed by conducting these steps in reverse. If you're handy at fixing cars, the job can be done with the proper tools. BMW 540i alternator replacement, however, is often better left in a mechanic's hands, since it involves working with delicate electrical components.
