I went to my BMW mechanic today for an oil change and he told me that I have to change the starter...
I looked on the net but there are many different starter models...
I want Bosch (unless you tell me not to buy this) but look at this: http://www2.autopartsauthority.com/parts/a...F&&part=Starter
Look at the note:
If the vehicle calls for the SR0445X which is built without threads in the drive end, either unit with or without threads can be used. If the vehicle calls for the drive end with threads, SR0448X should only be used.
How do I know what's the right one for me? Also, is this refurbished because the dealer want +355$ for a Bosch starter instead of 120$ ??!!
By the way, I have a 318i 1998, M44, manual. Don't know if it's usefull to say I got a VALEO alternator.
Thanks and Merry Christmas
