Starter motor issues
Mkiv R32 driving to Perth, currently in Eden...
Went to start car and here a whirling sound .... Starter motor not engaging properly
Any way to fix this on the road ?
Anyone jump started a R32 before - should be OK if the starter completely dies
OK made it to Perth without any other issues
Time to get the R32 on a hoist and find out what's going on
I had the same problem
Apparently clutch dust on the starter motor or something like that?
Thanks for the info...its likely as it went to a well known tyre shop (near the airport) for some new Kuhmo ku31s and the car stank like it had been driven hard...
I will take a look give it a spray with the airline in my garage...funny when the starter doesn't engage I can pop it into reverse then back to first and then she starts but hellish noisy whine
