Hi all!

I’ve got a tdi 90 and the starter motor seems to have packed in. I’ve cleaned the earth strap connections and checked the cable for damage. Also when it wasn’t turning, giving the motor a bit of a whack got it started.

There seems to be a plethora of choice regarding starter motors (and varying prices!) does anyone have any recommendations?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Have you compared your reg with that of 75 for starter motor part numbers on carparts4less/eurocarparts ?

Earth leads can fail internally, if you can check the resistance in the cable looking for no more than .5 ohm

If you're up for a bit of DIY then you can buy new brushes and a solenoid for a lot less than a new Bosch one ... I have a thread on here somewhere

Thanks for all the replies. I’ve typed my reg on euro car parts for my car and there were a few different starter motors to choose from! I was wondering what people’s experiences were before I bought a particular one.

I’ll deffo look at the thread on repairs and have a go. The problem I’ve got is I’m absolutely snowed under with work! 😩
It’s becoming more crucial to get it done but can I find anyone to do it?!! Nooooooope! 😂😂 I’ve got a day off next week 👍🏼👍🏼
