    Locating starter motor

    Hi all, I have a VW lt35 which is having starting problems. The ignition clicks but it does not turn over. The clock is reading the correct time and lights work, so not a flat battery. Can anyone point me to where the starter motor is so i can try hitting it.
    Many thanks Sue

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0. Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec

    Data Sticker/Options Sticker and Engine Codes

    The starter motor should be easy to find its on the back of the engine where it bolts to the gearbox.

    You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    You can't update your profile using a phone, as I've said above. Post your LT35 details in this post and I will update your car spec. Year and engine size/type.

    You can't tell if the battery is sufficiently charged by how the clocks and lights react, it needs testing with a proper battery load tester or jump pack to see if it starts BUT it does sound like the stater motor so we need to know more about the van as their are some big variations on the LT.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
