hi and happy new year to all ,
last month my starter on my t5/t30 just stopped working , initially thought it may have been ignition barrel or cables but after testing i found it was the starter. i purchased a new one from a local dealer not vw, at a cost of £116 plus i had to return old one.
from the initial fitting there was a problem as if the new starter was not always engaging, every 5th go it would not turn the engine over but then go straight away the next time.
my thoughts at first were a faulty part so i removed it and exchanged it for a new one, which has the same response , i am now thinking the ring gear or maybe as it is a patterned part its not quite the right fit, any suggestions would be welcome
ps when i removed the old starter there was no wear on the dog and the same when i removed the second starter
