bosch alternator confusion between AL41 and AL44


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Which of the two are truly bolt in, requiring no spacers, new bracket(s), etc? I have read conflicting advice on the forum. also, which alternator will allow me to reuse the stock pulley?

AL140X. It is the 90 amp version for the E30 318i. You need the 318i alternator bracket and adjuster bar. If you find them used that's a good thing. New, those brackets are pricey.

Search for 1984 318i with the M10 motor.
