What are Alternator Carbon Bushes?

Your car's alternator powers your car battery and all the other electrical consumers, such as the air-con, headlights, and instrument panel. The brushes play the crucial role of providing power to the field coil on the rotor using two slip rings.

Carbon brushes are typically made from a highly conductive graphite material and are secured by tensioned brush holders, which means they are very strong and long-lasting. However, it is possible for them to wear down over time. Most brushes will last around 120,000 miles, after which point they will probably need replacing.

If your car battery won't charge up or the battery warning light is lit, it could be a sign that the alternator brushes aren't working and no longer provide a sound electrical connection. You can test the brushes by doing a voltage check using a multimeter. To check your battery, follow our guide on choosing, charging, and changing your battery.

You can also learn how to change your alternator with our detailed guide.
