1.8 Starter Motor

Recommended Posts

never tried, they look quite different but the blocks are the same in that area (in fact more or less the same entirely) can have a look, or can send a good 1.8 one, I have a couple of spare good ones, £20 + £7 post

I remember reading somewhere that there are actually 2 different starter motors for the xe engine, with a different number of teeth on the starter cog.

Never actually investigated this to confirm though, but thought i'd mention it.

Might be worth taking your starter off and comparing it to a 1.8 one, i'm sure Rutts will have one lying around you could compare to :thumbup

think you need to crimp on a different terminal onto the exciting wire from ignition.
