    Starter Motor

    Hi guys

    Just wanting abit of advise... Ive got the common problem of the bushes going in my starter motor which in turn produces a very annoying 2 second squeel when I start up my car. Ive had the problem since buying the car 2 years ago but Im finally fed up with it and going to get round to fixing the problem.

    Just got a quote off my local non audi garage for a new starter motor of 140.

    They also recommended a local company to get starter motor refurbed... waiting to get a quote on that though at the moment.

    As its a common problem... where have you guys sourced parts from and what sort of prices have you paid?

    Found this item on ebay but Im abit dubious: http://motors.shop.ebay.co.uk/items/...em360069714998

    Any info would be great

    Daz - Audi A3 - 18" rs4 alloys - Weitec ultra gt 30mm kit - pipercross panel filter - tints all round - facelight rear lights - clear side repeaters - german style plates - flip out dvd touchscreen hu

    Got a recon motor (I think it was recon) from Sahib Autos near Ace Cafe. It's done the job for the past 2 years or so. It wasnt alot if I remember right, but I cant remember exactly, similar figure to Ed's I think.
    Didnt take me long either, about 3 bolts.
