Default Starter Motor Removal (2001) TD4 Freelander

Here are just a few pics to clarify the positions of the Bolts that require removal to disengage the Starter Motor (Denso as fitted to the 2 Litre BMW Engine).
If you are carrying out the usual solenoid service kit replacement of parts ,then this procedure is fairly straightforward.
The Haynes Manual is pretty vague on this part of the strip down and eludes most who endevoir to try and figure out the removal given from the manual pics and illustrations.
1/The pics start at the top view of the engine and this is how it looks before you commence removal of the starter.
2/A few illustrations showing the rear/top bolt including the spanners to clarify its position.
3/The motor is shown with electrics removed and the front bracket bolt hole visible after front bolt/nut removed.
4/If the battery box is removed, this can make easier access to the top/rear bolt using a 13mm socket and swivel knuckle on the wrench.
5/Last Pic shows the starter bolts / batt box bolts and removed Motor.
Hope you find this information useful and good luck with the easy part (replacing the plunger and contacts).

Cool Re: Starter Motor Removal (2001) TD4 Freelander

Hi all, my first time on this site, really useful. Thanks for the post on the startermotor, just pulled mine out and fitted kit from ebay, and it worked first time.
Wife broke down last week and a well known recovery company attended and told her it would be 250 to fit new starter, as they are sealed units. Ha to them. off for a well earn shandy

I'm having to do mine, when I turn the key to start nothing happens, I release the key and turn it again. It sometimes starts straight away and sometimes takes 4-10 goes to get it started. Will the whole motor need replacing or just a repair kit fitted.

Excellent! I was struggling to find the rear bolt, Haynes manual was no use Starter now out and waiting for the kit from eBay so thanks for the help. Bit of a squeeze to get it out past the pipework. Hope I can get it back in

Yep, went in easy enough. All sorted and starts perfectly now. That saved a few hundred quid!

The contacts were seriously worn. The larger one was a good mil lower than the smaller one so obviously was having trouble connecting. I took a photo showing the wear but can't work out how to upload a photo

Also fixed Donald thanks to a thread on here which started when I fitted the EGR bypass so a good day all round. Thanks for an excellent forum. {Quack...}

I have the starter unbolted but there is just too much stuff in the way to get it out, there seems to be some sort of heat exchanger at the non drive end that it fouls against
