radio suppressor ??? Message Icon


hi this was on the back of my alternator ..am I correct in thinking its the radio suppressor Scratchchin just wondering because I have no radio fitted at the moment so is it only needed when one is fitted ( sounds like a really dumb question silly ) a radio may be fitted later and if so will any suppressor do ?

Re: radio suppressor ???


It looks like an old suppressor to me, like I used to have on my old Minis etc.

We had "noise" on the radio on the '78 and many years ago I bought one of these from Ecklers.

It's been on the car since 1997 and seems to be doing its job!

Re: radio suppressor ???


Yes, both of those are "capacitors" being used as "suppressors".

If you have a radio noise problem from an alternator it will sound like a whine through the speakers which rises and falls with engine rpm. (An alternator with failing diodes is more likely to whine than a good one.)

I'm not aware of a capacitor/suppressor being required for proper function of the alternator itself.
