    Which starter motor?

    Hi guys
    I want to replace my starter motor and can't figure out which one i need since there are 2 available. I had a look at it and couldn't see a part numper on it. I took some pictures for my mate who's getting it for me at trade price, but he can't tell. I can't really take it off to give to him.
    Anyone know which one this is via the pictures?
    Audi A3 2.0 TDI BKD 2005



    Audi A3 | STARTER MOTOR | 2.0 TDI & Quattro (S1672)
    12 volt, 2.0kw | 10 Tooth | Diesel | 2003-ON


    Audi A3 | Starter Motor | 2.0 TDI & Quattro (S1674)
    12 volt, 2.0kw | 10/11 Tooth | Diesel | 2003-Present

    Its one of them but i dont know which

    You people do make your lives hard for yourselves, just ring audi parts, quote your vin & they will tell you the latest you need, as its a bkd then it will be an L or LX for dsg & remove the starter to see the part number which is probably an H.

    I did call them and he said there's 2 a bosch and a valeo one and couldn't tell me which one i have in my car. I had a feel of it and could feel any stickers or numbers stamped on it. So you think there's no way of telling without taking it off?

    Guys a numpty then, but to be sure pop the starter out & check, its imprinted into the metal casing.

    Ah just seen yours is a manual, so its a p, px or nx, but as said remove old one to be sure.

    Ok will have to find some time tommorow to have a look, just thought someone here might know via the pictures.
    How many nuts are there, i assume there's one on top (in the picture) and one below, the one below seams a bit odd to get to?

    And how did you find out my car's a manual?

    Can see the gearbox mechanics on the top for the gear selector mate, dsg doesnt have that.

    2 hex headed bolts, cant remember size but airbox out job, spanner to disconnect the starter wire, disconnect the battery 1st.
