Hi Loren,

I think my alternator may be bad, can you provide me with the part number. Also, do all manual trans 996's use the same part? If so, I think that I may need Bosch AL0812X.

Thank you so much!

Jeff

Jeff,

If you do a search here you will find links from those people who replaced their alternator (on their non GT3 996) through Autozone for a fraction of what Porsche charges for the part. I don't know if you can do the same on the GT3. The DIY is realtively easy as well. Just a thought. Possibly avoid the "Porsche tax" :D

Loren, Thank you for the information. Do all manual trans 996/997's share the same part number? I ask because I will mostly likely purchase it directly from Bosch.

Thanks Phillip, I definitely can't afford the OEM part at this time. I found a local shop that sells remanufactured Bosch units for $250, I just hope that Lucent can install it for a reasonable price.

Yes, I think it is the same except the pulleys change for by model year and type of pulley (with free wheel lock and without free wheel lock). So if you transfer your pulley to the new alternator you should be fine.

It's me again, Regarding remanufactured units - I've noticed that there are both 120 and 150 amps available? Which would do you recommend?

Me??? I'd always go for more - bigger - higher - stronger - etc., etc. It's a guy thing (as my wife says)... :lol:

I figured that much. I'm beginning to lose my nerve because once you upgrade one part, then you have to upgrade/modify the rest of the associated components.

Like Jeff, I've also got a 6GT3 with a bad alternator. Will part #996-603-012-03 also work?

Thanks.

Hi Loren,

I removed my alternator today and I was surprised to find that it was 150 Amp instead of a 120 and it also had a fixed pulley (like for a Tip) instead of the clutch type with bearings. Can you tell me if the PN's (997.603.012.04 & 997.603.012.DX) that you provided also apply to a standard 996 C2 with manual trans as well as 997 GT3? I ask because I'm having my unit rebuilt and the electric shop can change-out my pulley if I choose.

According to the exchange list - yes.
