Range Rover started suffering many strange faults and after a battery/alternator check it was determined that the alternator was toast. It was still producing power so it appears that just the Voltage Regulator is the issue.

Since there's no strange bearing noises or similar, and the alternator has already been replaced, I was thinking that this one should be rebuilt and put on the shelf as a backup.

Has anyone rebuild theirs before? Was it worth it? I'm just trying to get a feel for the project before I start digging in. I'm still within the "Return Core" window right now.

If you think you will need another after the warranty on your replacement is up, then it might be a good idea.

I looked into rebuilding mine, but a donor engine came with a spare. If you internet search "BMW X5 Alternator Rebuild" you will find several people that have done it and instructions. I also found an Ebay listing for a complete Bosch 180 amp Rebuild kit for $140.99 - you will have to do a more granular investigation to see if all the parts will work.
