LF: Voltage regulator

Hey everyone,

I am looking for a working voltage regulator with good diode, connectors and brushes/teeth. Have been beating my skull against my garage floor for the past few days trying to figure out what was causing my car to die and give out while driving. With a new battery (bought last year) and new alternator (what I was told by the PO) I finally was able to squeeze my hand behind the alternator with a Philips and pull out what looks to be a bad voltage regulator. Will post pics if required but I don't think they are necessary. From the burnt out receptacles at the back and tooth that was stuck half way in, I am thinking it is time for a replacement.

I will be ordering one online from Pelican Parts but I desperately need one to tide me over because of work.

Cheers

416*294*9535

I guess i've been out of the e30 game for too long, I don't remember having to solder anything. I remember it being a straight swap. But I could be wrong...
