I'd also be interested in this!

Also which is the correct starter motor?

Mine was replaced 2 years ago but it didn't help.

Mine is sluggish starting, even when jumped off a good battery.

Same car, 2005 2.0hdi.

1.Wait three minutes from last operation on car.
2.Disconnect the battery, both terminals.
3.Remove airbox.
4.Disconnect starter wiring (starter is located at from of engine, you can't miss it)
5.You'll need an 8mm allen key and a few spanners for leverage.
6.All there is is three 8mm allen key studs hoilding it on.



Do this job at your own peril. If you're not up to it or have tools, get someone who does.

Thanks guys, that's mine done. Took me just under two hours, quite easy really, considering that was the first time ever I've worked on my car! I think I'll be getting stuck in more.

Good news!

I've ordered a replacement for mine, should fit it next weekend.

I'll take a few pics and upload them.
