JST Posted October 7, 2007 Share Posted October 7, 2007 A while back (2mths?) i replaced the starter on 200tdi after it kept failing to engage, a sharp tap with a hammer and it would work, but less than ideal. yesterday, for the 1st time since fitting, the new one did the same, no tap needed this time, just repeated ign on/off got it to go, with a little rock on the transmission. the only difference yesterday was that it was a damp morning, this morning for example it fired up straight away no problem. the last time it was used was Thur so its in regular use and lives outside and hasn't been affected by weather to date. the s/m is going back tomorrow for a replacement although i dont want to have to go through fitting/removal every couple of months. there is a good earth from the block to the chassis.
