    Hi, the video shows a step-by-step instruction how to change the alternator on the 35i with the 2E engine. Alternators are wearing parts, at some point between 100,000 km and 200,000 km they fail on every Passat. Do-it-yourselfers can save a lot of money by doing this repair themselves...

    '81 pickup charges at about 13.3 volts with no accessories on----with the lights or heater fan on, it dro[s to about 12.7 volts. I think I have a 55 amp. alternator and it is fairly new.

    Hello I was experiencing low charging voltage (13V) and battery voltage when off at 12.0V. I replaced the original Valeo alternator with a Duralast Gold alternator and replaced a 1yr battery (under warranty) with a new battery Duralast Gold battery. I am uncertain if the problem still persist...

    My LLW Alternator that I replaced just had a semi-failure. The Case screws that hold the body together had a strippage from the re-builder. One of the Case screws backed out due to strippage and started to hit the Alternator fan. A 4.5mm Nut wasn't replaced on the screw on the back, so I added 3...

    My truck won't start after overcharging the battery. I changed the voltage regulator/alternator and the ICM. It still won't start. How would I check the coil? Would the hall sender in the distributor be suspect after charging at 18v for a couple of days? What damage and to what could result in...

    There's is a belt squealing noise that happens when I start moving the truck. It only happens if the truck has been sitting for at least 3 hours. I'm pretty sure it's not the alternator because I replaced that a few months ago. I'm thinking water pump or AC compressor, but I'm not sure. any...
