      With reference to your inquiry on the BWD/Intermotor Alternator Brush Set - part# X580, alternators are devices that convert mechanical energy to electrical energy. They consist of a wire-coiled rotor that produces a magnetic field when a current runs through it. Automotive carbon brushes are used to supply the current to the wire coil in the alternator.

  • Q:

    The brushes in my alternator are in an assembly with no external wiring. The computer says these will work for my year car. Will they really?
