Re: Replaced Starter - Still Grinding noise

Hey mate,

Just seen your reply, got bolt out easy enough, took the whole lot apart and replaced bearing aswell as was old anyway and had a spare new one sitting around collecting dust.

Cheers

Re: Replaced Starter - Still Grinding noise

Will do man, and will be hand extraction ones. Yeah if you could find the part number I'd really appreciate it, I know they are a tight fit even without the bolt but I'd prefer not to risk/bodge it.

Re: Replaced Starter - Still Grinding noise

Not much left to grab unfortunately, yeah was gonna get a set of these, reckon they'd do the trick? Got the bolt moving ever so slightly with a little effort but all of a sudden the head went like chocolate... got it soaking in penetrating fluid overnight. Will also need a new bolt, don't suppose yo...

Re: Replaced Starter - Still Grinding noise

Re: Rear lower shock absorber bushes

Not necessarily. Each manufacturer can make a bush thats unique to that part. It only has to bolt onto the 6N2 chassis. Its outer diameter could differ between manufacturers Hmm i suppose that makes sense, why is it the little bits are always the bloody hardest to fix haha il get under my car today...

If i was to contact a company that does coilovers for my car, surely the bush size would have to be the same as any other company as it is specific to my car?
