Replacement Alternator

Postby DrJekyll » 08 May 2017, 09:43

Hi al. My Granvia alternator isn't charging the battery properly. The battery warning light stays on unless revved over 1,000rpm and having had the alt checked I've been told it's just not doing it's job in keeping the battery charged up.

Can anyone advise on where I can get a replacement as the local garage said it wasn't on their standard parts list.

Thank you!

You can get a part number from your toyota main dealer by quoting your chassis number. They could probably supply one too but would be expensive

once you have a part number it should be possible to source from a specialist independent

however I had mine rebuilt by a good auto electric guy for about £75.

Might only need brushes which is an easy fix

The symptoms sound similar to those seen on my Granvia back in 2012 which I eliminated by replacing the alternator. See the thread here:
http://www.toyota-granvia.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1131. Also take a look at this thread: http://www.toyota-granvia.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1594

The place I bought my replacement alternator from (http://www.startermotor-alternator-store.co.uk/toyota-4-runner-30-td-93---95-alternator-a2054-6045-p.asp) still stock the same (non-Toyota) model A2054 and it's now cheaper at £122 incl delivery. (After 4 years, mine is still going strong tho' I had to replace the 15-year-old battery last month.)

Thank you both for the information. It seems that the specific alternator for my 3.4 V6 is nigh on impossible to source a replacement for. If anyone knows any different, let me know please!

The part number is:
12V 10 22 11 - 2080
27060-62220

If anyone knows of someone in the York area who can remove and rebuild the alternator for me (I'm inept when it comes doing this stuff myself, even removing and refitting!).

Cheers.

You can import a new alternator from Amayama.
I jus did a search, link below

I have used them in the past and no problems.

There are companies that rewind alternators. If you try google you may find one in your area.

Hi Dr Jekyll
Try the link below put in your chassis No and go to groups then electrics and then alternator, this will give you the part number. I find Lancashire rotating are good for alternators and starter motors. Tel:-01772 623600 they will do a next day delivery but if you are near Preston you can collect, they usually supply new units so don't want the old unit back but this does depend on the availability of the alternator you require.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice and ideas.

I contacted KG Auto Engineers near Huddersfield and they confirmed what I was finding i.e. that getting hold of a replacement alternator for the 3.4 petrol V6 is virtually impossible. However, I took it into them and they repaired and re fitted the alternator and gave the van a full service for about £400.

Very efficient and I'll use them for any future Granvia repairs.
