Hi all, I've been reading this forum for a while after buying a 1999 1.6 A3, lots of good advice here! Since buying the car the starter motor would make a screeching noise every time I started from cold, so this weekend I finally decided to take it out and clean it in the hope it would get rid of the noise. I followed this tutorial; http://www.montreal-vdubbing.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=43 After putting everything back together and double checking all connections the car wont turn over, the starter wont even spin I thought it may be the battery as I get random intermittent battery warning lights so tried jump starting it - nothing. Could I have killed the starter just by cleaning it? Is there anything I can do!? Thanks in advance for any help.
