How do i change Starter motor vauxhall corsa?

Hello mate just removed a 1.7 Diesel startor motor.


Remove top half of inlet manifold (8mm 12sided socket or spanner)

Undo the two plastic bolts on the expansion tank (water bottle. 10mm)

Move tank out the way

Look down onto starter motor, remove bolt on which goes through bell housing into starter motor (16mm )

Jack car up, from underneath look up to starter motor, remove bolt which goes through the starter into gearbox (15mm)

Remove nut from starter solenoid (little part of starter motor. 13 mm)

Undo philips bolt and disconnect wire

Bobs your uncle you have removed your starter motor "

Remember if you disconnect battery you will need code for radio to reset it .
