    Re: Takes time to start

    I had the same problem with my '97 TDI 110. It needed several turns of the key to start, gradually getting worse and worse until I was afraid it wouldn't start at all. A new start motor cured it.
    Now my '00 TDI 115 is going the way same......

    In both cases with my two cars there has been plenty of 'juice' in the batteries.
    Fitting a new starter motor has completely cured the problem on one car; I haven't got around to it on the other yet but will do so within the next week or so.
