The regular dealerships cost 3 to 4 times than a local garage that deals with mutiple car models . Price of alternator $150 to $350. Labor $100 to $300 HR.

The alternators can be rebuilt for $100-$300 depending on the alternator. The removal and reinstallation will take about 2 hours of labor depending on the model. Labor charges are around $70-$90 per hour depending on your location and where you have your car worked on. If the voltage regulator is the only problem, this will be a $40 repair.

A lot depends on where you have it done. A reputable dealer or service shop will charge between $800-$1300 for the parts and labor for the job.

Depending on the year and make of the BMW it could cost anywhere from $120. 00 to $600. 00 Make sure you are going to a reliable repair shop. Also good to get several quotes from different repair shops.

The cost of the alternator repair is between $200-$500 if you do it yourself. That price is the cost of the alternator alone and where you get it from. If you have a dealer do it, the price will be about $500 to $700.


Answer by  Chucko (103)

About 500 - 800 dollars. This is a fairly difficult repair, if you consider yourself a novice i would recommend either consulting your car manual, or seeking the help of a licensed mechanic to-be safe.


Answer by  Steven (309)

BMW alternators alone without any labor costs, usually run around $300-$400. They are relatively basic to install but it still remains a timely task. Labor can run anywhere from $200-700 depending on where you go. I wouldn't advise doing this task unless you know what you are doing and are aware of other engine parts needed.

$150-$350 and the labor $100-$300 hrs. Depending on what kind of year, model and make you have. Some dealerships and service shops price ranges $800-$1300 with both part and labor.


Answer by  laura27 (1216)

Regular dealers can be costly at times that will run you to pay $150 to $350 dollars. The labor work $100-$300 hrs. It will be a better choice to look around before jumping at a first deal. There are deals that will not charge real high. Some models cost more than others that will run you to pay $120-$600 dollars.

BMW alternators can be bought at your local Autozone for about $170-$210 (+ tax) with lifetime warranty. There are a lot of reference video & blogs on the internet how to do it. With basic common sense, the right tools and 2-4 hours of work, you can do it yourself.
