Replace Starter Motor/Solenoid on a Citroen Xsara 2.0 HDi 51 plate
How easy is this do, I'm not a mechanic, but I've done exhausts and manifolds, gaskets on a Pug 205.
I've got not Haynes manual, not looked at the engine bay yet, spoke to garage, and they told me it was a difficult job, because drive shafts have to be removed!
just lost job, so got no money really, to spend ?250 at the garage to get down, so If I can with my tools on the drive (got no ramps or pit).
I may give it a go, and try and get a new one from ebay.
Any tips, or best left to professionals?
Kwik Fit quoted ?450!
I've been having problems starting, and over the last year, it's been very laboured turning over, purchased new battery in Dec 10, because thought it was that, and then smoke appeared twice when turning over on two occasions, and now it just goes click and no start.
