Hello Owensy. I'm a newbie and have been reading about your starter dilemma. I'm not sure if you mentioned it but what engine is yours?? If it's the 2.0Ltr Diesel then it might be worth checking for Flywheel dust clogging up the Starter, which will eventually cause it to fail. Was the old one 'coked' up at all?? If this has been mentioned already then I apologize!! Hope this might help!!

Just when I thought everything was ok, it has broken down again! The starter turns slightly but then just spins! Had to get the AA out an he has said its the starter gone again!

I guess its what I get for putting a second hand one on from a scrappy!

I really thought it was the DMF that had gone!

I've had the same issue with rad fans from scrappies.  The problem is that stuff is left outside exposed to all weathers where it's normally safe and dry in the engine bay with the bonnet down, instead of left up, or missing completely.  Luckily, starter motors aren't massively expensive to buy new.

Are you sure that it isn't? If the DMF is shredding and losing particles, they could be jamming the pinion on the starter. I hope for your sake, or more exactly, your wallet's, it isn't, but it is a possibility.

 

In any case, as you've got a spare, you might want to enquire about the cost of getting one reconditioned, as that's often reasonable, they require an 'exchange' and you usually get some sort of guarantee.
