Exact fit and power of stock unit. Very simple installation with one electrical connector and three bolts. Seems a bit pricey considering it's rebuilt and there is nothing fancy about the technology. To be fair, the Advance price was competitive with the rest of the local parts chain stores. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. Too early to comment on longevity but I've never had any issues with Advance backing parts warranties so I am comfortable that it will provide acceptable service.

Bought the alternator for 99 VW Bug 2.0 liter. The one thing I want to point out is that it wasn't a exact fit (at least for my car). The picture on the advance website isn't correct. It does come with the pulley, but the bushings on the mounts are wrong. I needed to add 3/16" worth of washers so the alternator wouldn't move around. It seems like whoever put the bushings on reversed it. I brought it back to the store to return to exchange for another but it was the same thing. After searching around at other auto parts stores I decided to stick with this one as it was a good price when using a coupon and it came with the pulley, which no other store did.

Comments about CARQUEST Alternator - Remanufactured - 90 Amps:

The alternator was easy to install with no problems. Just make sure you get the right amp one for your Jetta because of the 2 different size amps. The alternator looked like a new one. Even though it was a remanufactured one still comes with a great warranty.

    Perfect fit, looked just like new, and best of all it was in stock.
    I would have gone with the heavy duty one if it was in stock.
    There is nothing to complain about, 3 months later, and it is working with no issues,

        Not a Bosch unit, but good to know that it has a lifetime warranty which is important with these remanufactured units.

                I'm happy to help, Beast! This ToughOne Alternator - Remanufactured - 90 Amps (Part No. 12038) is an designed to fit the Volkswagen Golf GL with a 2.0L L4 VIN: AEG. There is more specific product information provided under the Product Application(s) heading in the Description tab when the vehicle information is entered into the website.

                You will also only see this show up as an Exact Fit for the VIN: AEG, the other two VIN codes for that model year vehicle indicate that this part is not an Exact Fit.
