The garage have just told me it is the starter motor, so I guess that I'll go ahead with that.......................

If you are handy with spanners, this is a repair kit (from fleabay) that can sort the problem for a while:

It bought me a year before I had to bite the bullet and spend hundreds on a new motor!

Glad you got it diagnosed :clap:

Theres a shop in malaga that repairs starter motors. We had a opel sintra one repaired for 100e, and a ford transit one..

Rebuild.. Nobody said they wanted a new one ?

They said about 80 euro labour and I think the starter motor around 150

The Malaga option is out of the question because the car, which is not going, is in Estepona. :roll: :roll: :roll:

I'll keep you all posted! :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave:

Actually, I've just looked up the price on a web site I regularly use for my Td5 spares and a Freelander new starter motor is either 130 GBP or 150 GBP (neither is a LR official branded part) and the latter price will get you a Denso part (the original equipment maker) so I will revise my earlier comment 'cos you may well be getting a new/refurbished one and not just a repair to the existing one.
Best wishes
