Volkswagen Starter Motor

Volkswagen Starter Motor

The Volkswagen starter motor is a powerful electric motor that provides the initial impulse to turn over the engine to start it. It requires a very high current to crank the engine, which is why it is attached to the battery with large cables. When you turn the ignition key to the start position the battery voltage goes through a circuit to energise the Volkswagen starter motor.

If your Volkswagen starter motor is not fast enough it is either a problem with the motor itself or the battery has run down.

The starter motor may need replacing if it’s not turning fast enough or if the part is seized. There are a number of reasons why the starter may not be working despite a good battery: once you have eliminated simple mechanical or electrical faults, it's much easier to replace the whole component as opposed to stripping it down and fixing the fault. It’s essential to disconnect the battery before removing the starter motor (and its attached solenoid in pre-engaged motors) so that you don’t accidentally cause a short circuit. While a single fault might be repairable, it is usually more economical to fit a new starter motor if a number of faults are found. We stock high-quality starter motors that are designed to last.
