Default starter motor 807 2.2hdi

Hi guys. I have just removed the starter motor and dismantled it to find
loads of oily gunk inside plus the commutator has a burned out section,so I
ordered a new one. The outside of the motor is quite oily. I removed the
housing that has two butterflies inside it and this is quite oily aswell.Where
is this oil coming from?
I have read elseware on the forum,that the oil penetrating the starter
motor is not uncommon on the 807 . I need to find the cause before this
new motor suffers the same fate.
Cheers, Peter.

This is common in ALL hdi engines it simply an oil leak somewhere rocker cover most likely or oil filler /breather or simply spilt oil during filling.

There dosen,t seem to be a leak from cylinder head area. I think I will
clean up the area and watch out for any future problems. Can you tell me
what the plastic housing is in the pic. I,ve only had the car about 6-7 months
so I don,t know what a previous owner has done.
Regards,
Peter.

Sorry not sure what the housing is but it looks like oil is leaking from above. On our 807 with 220K miles the oil on the starter comes from leaks from the flaps in the splitter intake housing removed in your photo.
The flaps are there to either let intake air in prior to the intercooler or when engine is hot air is diverted into the intercooler to cool it before combustion. Doesn't use much oil so have not bothered replacing the intake housing.

The housing is an oil seperator/breather it is only fitted to 2.2 engines but i agree leak looks higher up but give it a wash and keep an eye on it.
