Stater motor replacement

George Elliott

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help? I’ve had my xj soveriegn diesel from new and what a car. As with most of us I’ve had to lay it up during the pandemic now I’m having problems stating it. Fitted new battery but it sometimes starts and otherwise it just clicks. I am told to fit a new starter motor but I can’t find and information on how to do this. Being auto I can’t move it so I have to try this on my drive. Can anyone offer advise? I’m an old engineer with talent but no manual. Thanks
