Inside Line: Autoelectro

On VW Transporter T2 petrol variants, the Starter Motor is free floating and it is important that the bush in the gearbox housing where the armature locates is replaced to avoid slow or lazy starting issues, which ultimately causes the starter motor to fail.

The bush in the gearbox is difficult to replace and is often worn, checking of the armature shaft for wear or scoring will show if the bush needs replacing. Corroded terminals are also a problem and should be cleaned before fitting.
