Hello guys.

Continuing from my previous post, if a new battery doesn't solve the no cranking issue then im going to replace the starter motor.

Question is, how hard is it on diesels? (i say diesels because they all have the same-ish type setup and petrols might be a little different)

Through research, i have to remove the inlet manifold to give me a bit more room. One of the bolts look like a complete A S S to remove so im going to get a ratchet with a swivel head according to one guy who removed his and the swivel head ratchet helped.

Would be highly grateful if any of you guys can share your experiences and give me some tips etc.

Cheers.

see my earlier detailed post
involves a lot of scratches to the back of your right hand....
about 2 hrs work for the experienced and total loss of coolant
need torx sockets and a flexi handle as access is poor near the bulkhead
its probably the soleniod and this can be bought separately
