o ya , most things are bolt on bolt off part , thats not a prob , the prob is its a V6 , so any work you do on one its a case of removing half the engine to do any thing :} , dont get me wrong doing it ant a prob , but if some one on here has done it and now any little tips etc it all helps , but i take it no one has :}

dont worrie about it i will remove it tomorrow and see whats the prob.

night all and have a good xmas :D

I've done it on mine and it was a right pain in the RS job to be honest. On the V6 it isn't underneath like it is on the other models it's on top of the gearbox. If youy take out the airbox it is staring at you underneath there. The biggest pain is getting the old one out and the new one in as it is a very tight fit. But hey if I can do it so can you :L

I thought it would be quite easy, The V6 starter is on the top of the box, The 4 pot on is a pain because its on the back under the inlet

so if the starter motor spins but the solenoid isnt pushing out , you may get away with just sorting the solenoid , could just be a dodgy connection , just a thought that might save you a few pennies ;) :L
