BMW Electrical Parts
BMW has always put their desire for quality and current designs at the head of their brand, which has escalated them into being one of the German big three in the auto industry. Their reputation for quality has been respected continuously in all of their products, especially their electrical parts and components. The alternator in your BMW can showcase some symptoms or warning signs while you are driving it that will directly affect the electrical system. Though these issues are common, you may want to replace the alternator if you continually have battery problems. The alternator in your BMW can bring about voltage drops throughout the electrical system when you are using a lot of electrical devices. For example, when you use both front seat heaters, the brightness of your BMW’s headlights may be affected. The bolt that mounts to your alternator to the engine can force the drive belt to break from contact. This bolt sticks out far enough to occasionally touch the drive belt when your engine is running. The belt will wear down over time due to the constant friction. Your BMW's alternator may not give enough charge to your battery if you make a lot of shorter trips, as it provides a small charge that only works if you drive your BMW for longer than a couple of minutes. Your BMW’s battery relies on the alternator to keep it charged all of the time. Each time your BMW is started, the battery uses some of its charge to turn the engine over. The alternator replaces this charge when the engine is running. An imperfectly functioning alternator will not be able to keep your BMW’s battery fully charged, resulting in terrible starting or a dead battery. If you have questions about BMW’s electrical parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are always here for you.

One of the early warning signs in your BMW when your alternator is failing is dimming or flickering headlights. This could indicate that your alternator is not producing enough electricity to power the electrical system. As engine speed is increased or decreased, your headlights will become brighter and dimmer as the weakened alternator's current goes up and down. A functioning alternator will keep headlights bright regardless of how fast or slow you are driving. A faulty alternator will also force your windows to open and close slowly, clocks to slow down or lose their settings, and power seats to hardly move. Alternators have many imperative moving parts. Inside an alternator are bearings that control the alternator's moving operation. Squealing or grinding sounds coming from your alternator are indicators of bearing failure and ultimate failure of your BMW’s whole alternator unit.
