    M62 4.4 V8 needs a new starter motor.

    As the title says, mine has died. I was at KLR at the time so Brad at KLR did a fair bit of fault finding and determined it was the starter. In the end, he did the old trick of tapping it with a hammer while I operated the key. It started so I was able to drive home. It started again (while hot) when I got home but not the next day. Naturally, the suspension lowered over night (it doesnít normally ) so I canít get under it again to tap the starter while my wife cranks it.

    Iíll jack it up tomorrow and see if I can get to the starter to give it a tap.

    Dunno what itís gunna cost to replace yet. Karcraftís list (RRP) price for a genuine LR starter is over $1300. If I had more time Iíd consider buying from OS.

    Replacing it requires removing the RH exhaust manifold and dropping the exhaust to get access so it will need a hoist. Iíll take it back to KLR during the week to get it replaced.

    Is it the solenoid only; or the whole unit ?
    You should be able to pick up another unit for around $400 if you shop around. Also cross check part number with BMW part numbers and there is an even bigger choice !

    Have replaced it myself recently with this unit from FCP.

    Pretty easy, a bit tricky to get out but you can angle it out after removing some heat shields. I think i found the article on it on a forum with instructions.

    you certainly dont need to follow the whole drop the exhaust bizzo.

    PS, i actually just did an order today from FCP, should be here in 6 days, if you can wait that long!

    EDIT: i think this is the article:
    Anyone replace their starter themselves on an 03-05 RR? | Range Rovers Forum

    Yes, mine was done last night by the apprentice at KLR Automotive. As you say, he didnít need to drop the exhaust or unbolt the RH exhaust manifold as specified in the workshop manual.

    I couldnít have done it at home, I couldnít have gotten under the car without a hoist.

    The output bearing is stuffed and the output seal was missing. I havenít pulled the old one apart yet.
