Thumbs up Burnt out Starter Motor Solenoid?

Some information for fellow members to use at a later date when you get the dreaded 'silence when turning the ignition key'

I have done some work with Carl at RepairkitsUK | Starter Motor Repair Kits | Don't Buy a New Start Motor - Repair It and he is able to supply a Plunger, Contact set and instructions to replace the solenoid parts at a very reasonble price (expect change from £20) check it out!!

I did mine this evening in approx 2 hours. Once the air cleaner is out of the way you can get to the top bolt of the starter motor and with the turbo drain tube out of the way the starter motor comes out easily.

Hope this helps..

Repair done succesfully. For info allthough the guys websie shows two types of starter motor the kia is fitted with the one that can be repaired.He has never had one that has not been. Bit of a fiddle getting it in and out, you do need to put the car on a jack and stands for safety but its a really simple job. What great info from the site, tthanks to the poster for the info. My garage quote was £270, the fix cost about £16. Bargain. Cheers Michael.
