My w203 51 plate currently refuses to turn over. I looked at SAM-UNITs DIY about the fuse etc and have checked the following...

The fuse is the original 15 amp, but hasn't blown.

There is a good earth between the chassis and engine, so not the earth strap fault commonly seen on the MLs.

The battery voltage is showing a good 12.4v

When the key is turned, I get about 12v on the trigger wire to the starter, so am I right to think that it's the starter motor itself?

If so, could anybody help with a paper how to replace the starter motor and any hints re access etc.

Many thanks !!!

Blakey.

Thanks Malcolm. Helpful as ever! :) I will talk to SAM, - I've been saving a few jobs up for him for a time when I can get a day off, - looks like I'll be forced to take time off sooner than I had hoped as I need the car asap!!
