    If it's noisy, I'd guess it's well past the point of greasing
    Once they get wear on the shaft inside the starter they start to draw a hell of a lot of current to start the car and starting gets slower and more difficult.
    My old Cavalier caught fire when the starter gave up I couldn't believe there was no fuseable link in the wiring!

    I had problems with a noisy starter motor – see thread link below, it details in there how much a replacement starter cost me.

    If it was mine, I would not bother greasing the starter motor bearings unless you only want a short term fix.

    LOL... don't worry Dave, it hasn't broken just cos it's a CDTi ! Starters wear out on lots of cars and mine managed nearly 200,000 miles before I replaced it. It was the original Mitsubishi one.
    I shopped around for prices and was shocked to be quoted between £260 and £450 for re-con ones. Then I tried Allparts and they had one in stock, a bosch re-con for £134. I asked for Taxi driver discount and got it for £110
    It was ok to fit actually. A bit limited on space to work but ratchet spanners came in handy. Just remember to disconnect the battery or you might do some accidental welding
