    Starter Motor removal 1.9 tdi manual

    Hello all.
    Been a member on here for a while and read a lot of stuff be never really posted till now.
    Basically the car wont start, there is a click as the solenoid engages but no power being taken from the battery, battery is fine so my think was mabe a lose connection to the starter motor. Unfortunately this doesn’t look to be the case so Im planning on taking the starter motor out. The car is a 1.9tdi manual, my Haynes states a fairly simple removal process. However after reading some forum stuff it looks like the front clip has to be pulled forward into the service position to gain access. Is this true, also if it maters it has a/c so the compressor for that is also clogging up the area.

    Cheers Scott

    As above really easy to do can be a pain to wiggle out if you don't do it right

    thanks boys, for any one reading this in the future. as above really very simple if a little mucky,

    undo two bolts from behind the crossmember holding the starter in plac.
    maneuver the motor around to gain access to remove the wires from in front of the cross member .
    then maneuver final to remove from behind crossmember.

    Yet to reinstall but in true Haynes style. Do the above in revers!! O and take the battery off.

    Thanks again
    Scott
