Hi guys,

I want to replace the starter motor on my GT. I was just wondering whether this one would be a good replacment?

Also has anyone got any tips of how to remove it? From what I read you have to attack it from underneath the car?

Thanks

Lie underneath and disconnect the plug connector and earth strap nut.

Remove the two 14mm holding bolts from above.

Slide back under and maneuver the loose motor out carefully.

Fitting is just the reverse, bit fiddly but straight forward.

Not sure on the one in that link as I've never used them but it looks correct. There's a few different types (stronger version in the Snow Versions) but the fitment and connections are the same.

Legend. Thanks a lot Jay.
She's going in for a remap on Wednesday - Hope she survives lol - but I'll get on the case and remove it afterwards.

Thanks Fiz. Theres a local place that I've used before to recon my alternator, so could be an idea just to do that instead.
