    Default Starter motor location? 2.0 DTI

    Hi all,

    basically my starter motor needs looking at. When I turn the key, all I hear is a whirring electrical sort of spinning sound, which I figure is the starter motor.

    Now luckily I've got the scrap left of my old DTI, so I'm hoping just to swap it over.

    i can't see the starter motor from the top, so does anyone know where it is and how hard the job is?

    much appreciated as always

    Get under the car mate its at the rear of the engine. Hopefully it is just the starter for you and not the DMF, if fitted

    Any ideas on what size bolts they are. Was speaking to my college teacher (I do mechanics) and he said it could just be jammed and a bump with a hammer might do the trick.

    Yeah exactly,

    it seems that the starter is underneath the ****** engine so that's the only headache. I've not got axle stands, so ill have to risk it under the jack!

    Very bad idea tbh mate, stands only cost £20 or so from Halfords...
