Is your VW Kombi or Beetle hard to turn over? Maybe it seems like you have a faulty battery but you are certain the battery is fine? A faulty starter motor often seems like a dead battery. You can easily test your starter motor by pulling it from the vehicle and jumping it direct to a known good battery and observing the solenoid operation and the speed at which the motor spins.
This starter motor is a brand new unit from our suppliers in Europe and is sold outright so exchange is optional. If you would like to send back your old unit we can offer $35 for the core unit. Please advise when ordering that you will be sending back your old unit and we will include an Australia post satchel for your return.
Fitting: This is the starter motor to fit Kombis which had a 1600, 1700 or 1800 engine with a 3-rib or 5-rib gearbox, as well as all 12 volt beetles. Over the years engine and gearboxes have been swapped out and there can be many different non-original combinations so it can be difficult to determine what starter motor you require. If you are unsure, you can remove your exisiting starter and send us some photos and we will advise which one is required. Unfortunately we cannot issue a full refund where you have mistakenly ordered the incorrect part for your vehicle .
