Evening Landy Lovers
Started taking out my starter motor yesterday for repair and cannot locate the second bolt securing it in place.
How did you get it out in end? I think my starter motor only had one bolt in it as can’t locate the second bolt. Won’t budge at all......
Thanks for great photo guide N,
I’ve removed everything except the second bolt - it’s hard to locate. Is the third photo taken from under the car...

I like to keep the undercarriage clean after beach or mud trips, just makes the bolts slightly more accessible :-) mind you the filler bolt for...
Finding it hard to remove the filler nut, is a hex spanner with hammer the way?
Hopefully the bearings are the underlying problem - just to...
