    it will literally be a click and nothing... imagine the sound you get when the battery is flat and doesnt have enough power to crank the engine.

    yeh mine was starting to click about 5 times before it finally went, sometimes it would try to start then stop on its own, ordered the stuff from mr t and installed them, very easy to do cant really go wrong at all, just follow the step by step pics and your easy on.
    Gave it a good clean inside and out and have put it on a heater for it to dry, will try it off the car to make sure all is well then refit, again very easy, simple job but a nightmare problem when it happens, stuck in the middle of no where and its just clicking away lol. Cheers again for the boys who took time out to take pics and step by step info.
    Are here to be broken

    so if my car when hot is getting a little lazy to start would this be a sign of my starter needed some tlc, also the other morning i got in the car and it refused to fire until maybe 4th 5th attempt.

    Yep, sounds like what happened to mine. Very intermittent at first but becomes more and more regular over time and could take a few attempts to get going. The refurb sorted it out and no problems since.

    I got that problem intermitently (actually, more often than not). And today it went to a whole different level when the starter actually got STUCK ON THE ON POSITION and keep whirring despite the engine starting. A quick jab at it with a rod stopped it. Dunno when it would happen again though. I'm scared now.
    Same problem here! But jabbing the solenoid didn't help! Does anyone have any good advices what to do... eg. pull the starter assy of and refurb the solenoid contact or whatnot?

    I was only trying to figure out what causes the solenoid to stick...
    But I took it out and cleaned everything and tested the ACC-wire for the solenoid... all was OK and now it fire's like it should.
    Must have been the copper dust in the solenoid causing not-wanted connection between the mainpower/ACC terminals

    Just did this refurb and so far so good. My old contact was worn almost completely to nothing. Just a note of caution, be very careful when you reassemble the 3 small bolts on the cap of the solenoid. Here's how it went as I was talking to my brother who was present and assisting me: "There, that should be tight enough. The last thing I want is to snap a bolt or something *snap*.... awwww, f*** sakes...." Lol, luckily the other two bolts are enough to hold it down. I just covered the 3rd bolt head with RTV silicone as it wasn't worth the hassle of trying to extract a 2mm wide bolt when it would still work as is... So be careful! It didn't take much at all.

    Awesome find! Ten quid, and it includes the plunger assembly which isn't something we'd been replacing up to now.
