Q:What is an alternator brush and what does it do?
A: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?
A:In order to check the exact fit application, please provide the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle and we would be better able to assist you.
