FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We want you to get the right part, the first time. With this in mind, we have created a Frequently Asked Questions page to help you navigate the site, understand how we operate, and identify the correct part required. This page in no way replaces good old fashioned personal service, so you can contact us by phone, email, or live chat during working hours and we will be happy to help you sort through any questions you might have.

The best way for us to accurately determine correct fitment, is for us to cross reference the part numbers from your existing alternator. Manufactures often use several different alternators in the same model vehicle depending on availability, cost and location at the time of manufacture.
In most cases we are able to cross reference, using the original brand and part number to interpret the correct unit for replacement. We also supply a detailed specification sheet at the bottom of our listing that shows all physical measurements, output rating and plug type for you to compare to your original unit.
In addition to the consumer guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law and subject to our standard trading terms all of our goods are warranted to be free from manufacturing defect for a twelve month period from the date of purchase. Click to view our policy
