    DEFENDER 110 TD5 starter removal

    When I turn the ignition key to start , the starter relay clicks but does not turn except occasionally, so I assume it is the starter solenoid sticking out. To remove it , I removed the 2 lower bolts on the starter motor mounting plate but cannot locate any other bolts / nuts. I removed the...

    Starter motor - ailment diagnosis

    The starter motor on my 200tdi has, since Ive owned it, often failed to engage with the drive ring on the flywheel on the first go. Sound battery, live and earth connections. On ignition, a good solid click indicative of the solenoid being thrown, the motor spins up, so the solenoid is closing...

    Expired Free Series starter motor

    Series starter motor free to a good home Please be aware, the solenoid fires but the pinion wheel does not engage so it will need renovating before being used. I inherited this part when I bought my Series III; I don't know what the cause of the fault is as I haven't investigated it...

    Wouldn't it be nice.

    Wouldn't it be nice if I could get through just one week without something falling off or breaking. Drove up to my archery club today and as I was the only one there I hopped out to close the gates behind me. Turned the engine off. Hopped back in again, turned the key, click... silence. I was...

    300tdi Starter motor checks - how to

    After a day playing in the mud yesterday, I went outside this morning to go and rewind my winch cable and give it a good hose out. Unfortunately when I turned the key there was absolutely nothing:( The heater fan was running fine, so the battery is ok. A quick look at the wonderful Haynes...

    Starter motor or solenoid?

    What was an intermittent starting fault earlier in the year, solvable with a gentle tap on the solenoid cap, is now getting to be a regular, and embarassing nuisance. The battery is good, earth wire to Stater Motor cleaned and tightened, and when it chooses to work the engine starts without a...

    Starter motor or solenoid gone?

    I read in one of the posts on a faulty starter motor ( or solenoid for that matter) "stick a screwdriver across the solenoid terminals. might be a shot solenoid"( posted by ATO). Would that get my starter motor to turn for the next few days, till I got a new one? Made soem weird noises during a...
