SOME BITS FELL OUT OF MY ALTERNATOR - C

1983 Volkswagen Van

Electrical problem
1983 Volkswagen Van 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

Hi - I had cause to remove my alternator from a 1983 T25 VW van because I need to fit a replacement mounting bracket. When I took the alternator off, something was rattling around inside it. I tipped it on its back and these pieces of a component fell out. Can anyone identify it and tell me what the implications are for my alternator?

Thanks very much
