Hey folks, a quick question...I'm about to do a Y cable job on my '08. Before ordering, I need to know if I have a 180 or 200 Amp alternator. How do I easily tell which I have,

Thanks,

Icarus

There's 'usually a label on the back cover.

icarus,
Send me an email with your VIN # and a return email address.
The OEM Build Data Card for your 2008 NCV3 Sprinter will have the
size/rating of your alternator.
Here is the Options code and alternator listing for another 2008
319 Series (2500 USA) Build date 7-21-2008.
M46 14 V/220 A ALTERNATOR
Then you will know, for sure, what alternator rating was originally
installed when your Sprinter was assembled in Germany.
