Starter Motor

Hey guys, starter motor has officially gone on the 90... had to hit it everytime to get the 90 started yesterday so ordered a new one last night. Question is for those who have replaced one on a 300tdi, is it easiest to take the panel off and access through the side?

thanks in advance

No. You should be able to get it out from underneath and snake it around the down pipe.

Wear eye protection when you're under the truck!

It failed almost exactly 1 year ago and did the old smack it trick and got it working. From then I hadn't had any problems with it since then untill yesterday, and it now needs to be hit everytime to get it going so it is going to be replaced. Ordered the part from Trevor at rovahfarm except he hasn't got any instock right now so may be replacing sometime next week.

Sounds like you milked it pretty well.
Are the 90 starters secured with those stupid socket cap bolts like the D1's are?

It should last more than a year. Was it a Britpart brand starter?

I reread the post. 1 year of smacking it around. Not bad!

So can you take the old one to an armature shop to get rebuilt?
