How Much Does it Cost to Rebuild an Alternator?

The average price to replace an alternator with a remanufactured one is $150-$300 if purchasing and doing the work yourself and averages $300-$500 if performed by a shop.

The average order total for our alternator brushes to kits is $22. This is because brush sets average $4-$9 and Kits average $29 to $45 and little more for OE European model Alternator Kits.

It is just Awesome that with your know-how or our Tech Help that you can turn a possible $500 car repair into $4.99!! It does happen ..
