Alternator - E36 318i, 318is, 318ti M42/M44, 80amp - 12311247310
High quality, 24 Month Warranty
This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 12311247310 and is described as "At-Compact Alternator 80A - 12311247310" for E36 4 cylinder models, including 318i, 318is, and 318ti as produced in 1992, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999. This is the standard (compact) 80amp alternator unit. If your car has extra added electrical draws (such as a large aftermarket stereo system) you may consider a larger amperage than 80A. For most applications, though, the 80A is sufficient and ideal.
If your BMW has suffered an alternator failure, your electrical system isn't receiving adequate charging to the battery and vehicle systems, eventually leaving your BMW 318i/318is dead in the water. This replacement alternator can be installed to replace your failed alternator and get you back on the road.
