Check your old starter motor for the following defects before fitting a new one:

Blue colour on armature shaft near pinion
Rattling inside motor when starter motor is shaken
Damaged teeth on starter motor
Burnt smell from inside starter motor

If your old starter motor shows any of these defects you have a vehicle fault that requires immediate attention. Failure to rectify this fault will result in the replacement starter motor failing due to the same vehicle fault. This will not be covered under warranty.


The technical information provided is for your guidance to help eliminate faults and avoid unnecessary warranty returns. You must also carry out your own inspections and tests. Autoelectro will not accept any liability arising from the information given which should be used for reference only.
