    Default 2.0 DTi - starting whirring noise?

    Hi all,

    I'm back to starting problems, on another 2.0 DTi?!?!

    This ones different. When I turn the key to start, i get some sort of futuristic whirring type noise, sounds like something electric!

    It only started a few days ago.

    Any clues on what it may be?

    Luckily, I still have the salvage on my old DTi so hopefully it'll be something I can swap over. Any ideas?

    sounds like the starter motor bendix gear is not engaging on the flywheel gear,if so the starter needs removing and the starter motor shaft and gear cleaning and lubricating,or change the starter motor.if you can put your hand on the starter whilst someone turns the key you will feel the starter spinning if it's not engaging.MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT IN CONTACT WITH ANY MOVING PARTS IF YOU TRY THIS.the engine may start while you are checking it.if you are not confident get a mechanic to check it for you.

    I'm actually a trainee mechanic in my first year, but we haven't covered starter motors yet! I'm confident with the job but how hard is it to remove it and whatnot.
