Polo 2000 1.0 replacing the starter motor

Post by John24 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 3:04 pm

Hi guys,

Well the starter motor have given up on life, been having issues with it for a while but now it will no longer turn over. So I got a second hand one from ebay but I am not sure how to approach replacing it. Some people say to remove it from the bottom but to me it seems that air intake removed, the access is better from the top.

What would you guys recommend?

I’ve normally done it from the bottom to avoid removing the inlet manifold but whatever you find easier

The hardest part is undoing the terminals
