How Much Does A Volkswagen Alternator Replacement Cost?
The alternator on your Volkswagen is what provides power to your vehicle when the engine is running.
Without it, you wouldn’t have air-conditioning, power windows or a stereo to blast out your favourite songs (although it’s probably best to have your windows up if your singing voice is anything like mine!), but more importantly, the alternator charges up the battery.
If your battery runs out of power, your Volkswagen won’t start, possibly leaving you stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Don’t ignore the warning signs – if your alternator is not charging correctly, the battery light will light up on the dashboard indicating an issue.
Depending on the location of the alternator, and if other components need to be removed to allow access to the alternator, it can cost between $400 - $900+ to have it replaced.
