    Default Had a price for a starter motor and collapsed!

    I had a quote for a new starter motor the other day and WOW they don't come cheap, well not from where I got the quote from anyway.

    I've been looking on ebay tonight and the prices don't seem too harsh, in fact there are some around the £100 mark. The only thing is that these arn't genuine items but match OE spec. The difference in price is £100 to £150, what do you think?

    Also, how much labour should I be paying for this?

    I was contemplating having a go but it looks extremely tight round the back of the engine.

    I've used this Ebay seller recently for starters and alternators and found them very good - I have no connection with the firm just had excellent service from them http://stores.ebay.co.uk/aapoldham

    Sorry mate forgot to put it on - not sure if you have the 120 or the 150 but be very careful wherever you get it from as they are slightly different

    thanks for the link, I'll have a look and see if they have one. I've got all the numbers off mine so hopefully they can provide me what I need.
