Product SKU: W0133-1665003
Product Note: Remanufactured - 120 Amp - Valeo
Detailed Note: The Valeo units have what is called a "floating stator", meaning that when the unit is assembled the rotor is not pressed into the alternator castings like a conventional alternator, but is placed/centered in the housing and held in place by the pressure of the through bolts holding the entire assembly together. If these units are dropped, or are subject to pressure during installation,the stator can actually shift slightly which will cause noises that range from a magnetic type 'hum' to a metal-on-metal noise.

This automobile could also found in the saloon, coupe and convertible styles. However, since 2015 BMW began using the M3 designation only for the saloon body style. There were upgrades in the past to increase the fuel efficiency, provide a better braking system, and the addition of the Motorsport "M" emblem. This BMW automobile functions with electrical energy being supplied to it. This is done with of numerous components within the car which provide a continued supply of electrical power. Car parts such as the battery, starter and alternator are the components which provide power.

Without an alternator the automobile's battery will drain, as the battery is only able to hold a finite amount of electrical power.

This is why it is essential to be on the lookout for suspected alternator problems as soon as they arise.
