    Default 2.2 petrol Help needed

    Hi all,

    Called to my uncles Vec B yesterday evening as he said it went with a loud bang and now wont start, checked timing chain which is still ok so turned over, seemed to turn over ok, but suddenly there was a loud crack from near what I think is the starter motor and a blue flash, I am not that familar with this engine (car is a Y reg 2.2 SRI150) and it was now dark and raining so hard to check anything else.

    Has anyone else come across anything like this on this engine? with better light I will check that the cables are connected properly etc to the starter but any other tips or suggestions would be most helpful as dont want to just change the starter if its something else. have attached a pic showing where the flash came from.

    PS I know its a Vec B but hey I still have a soft spot for em

    Chris

    Starter a bit further to left as we looking so do you reckon problem with Starter then? did think that possibly the solenoid where it kicks the big amps in may be FUBAR.
