    Default Noisy Starter Motor......

    On a full cold start up - ie. when its been left standing overnight there is a rather unpleasant low pitched squeel from the starter after the engine has fired and I've released the key.
    Any ideas what it may be?? It only happens when the car is stone cold and any other time of day it starts quietly.
    It is a 1.9 150 CDTi on an 06 Plate with 42k on the clock.
    Help appreciated!

    As it's covered under warranty, get them to have a look. To me it sounds like the drive mechanism of the SM isn't disengaging quietly, could be an early sign of something that will only get worse.

    Cheers fpr that - will ring them asap to get it booked in.
    If it needs replacement, are the parts readily available or will it be off the road for a while??

    Thanks for that - going to see what it sounds like this morning. Its damp and quite cold outside, so iI'll see what noises it makes on start up. Then I'll go to the stealers and get it looked at.

    Its not long been back out of there after gear lever came apart in my hands...... then there was the seatbelts.....brakes......cruise control......not to mention the appaling headlight beams.....

    Been out for a drive this morning, and it was as quiet as a mouse on start up. Will keep it for a week or 2 and see what else it does.
