    Default Starter motor

    Starter motor is randomly failing to engage so had to call the AA out. They got the car going but suggested a replacement needed. As I have breakdown cover up to £500 I took it to my local independent for a quote. Shock horror !! Around £580!! Starter is around £290 + VAT and 5 hours labour to fit!!

    Any comments?

    Vehicle : vauxhall vivaro

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.9

    Year : 2004

    No one is taking into consideration the starter on the v6 deisel is an absolute ***** to get to.

    IMO the labour price probably is probably a bit extra to cover any miss haps but I'd say easily 3.5 hours to fit

    He said the book says 4 hours but he's allowing 5 just in case As the AA are paying £465 then it's only going to cost me £115!
    Good old AA breakdown cover, only costs me around £10 a month
