I was gonna say "the clutch is well under $100 from the usual vendors here" 'cause I've changed one myself..... the tool bits to do it aren't very expensive either, assuming you don't know anyone who has them in their toolbox.

Idparts is great. I order most everything from them. Wish I would have ordered my alternator from them originally instead of O’reilys.

Mine recently started itself on fire due to a frozen bearing making the alternator have a zero core value...

Default alternator issue

While driving to work the other day the car made a horrible thumping sound and quit. Had it towed , then after removing all the crappy plastic panels found that the alternator pulley had come of the alternator. So I replaced the alternator with a new one and a new belt and now the car will not start?
What the heck is going on?

You should start your own thread for this. Will it crank?

Wondering if you were able to get your core back with a new pulley?
Any updates?

I got the old alternator back from AZ, and got the pulley/sprag from IDParts. I had to get a second reman BOSCH from AZ before my pulley came in, so I have to assume it will work as it did originally. Luckily I have it sitting on the shelf and my daughter’s 02 Beetle has the same ALH engine so if hers fails I have one to swap in immediately. Thanks for the help and suggestions CSSTEVEJ!

Ive been running this second reman unit from Auto Zone for several months now. It’s plugging right along. Thanks for all of the help, suggestions and assistance with finding the right parts to fix my old stuff!
