Inside Line: Autoelectro

All Models with engine code N52 between 2005 and 2006 – Poor starting due to camshaft position oil pressure valve stuck or sticking resulting in excessive cranking of the starter motor causing it to burn out

All models between 2007 and 2010 are common for belt slip – ensure belt is correctly tensioned and that the tensioner is not faulty and is refitted and routed correctly

OE numbers must be checked for correct replacement starter for stop start models, as the stop start model starter motor is heavy duty.
