Hi folks,

I suspect my starter motor has just died. Got in the car yesterday and there was nothing when I tried to start it; no crank, no start. All the electrics work ok, doors open and close with the remote, but there's nothing when I turn the key to 3. I'm confident the battery is good as it's in regular use but I'm going to methodically check it tonight. Also tried the spare key and it was the same.

Realoem says the part number is 12 41 2 354 693 but doesn't mention a manufacturer. I'll probably go safe and get a Bosch if it is knackered but thought I'd ask what others have replaced with? Or is refurbishment a wise option?
