Starter Motors & Alternator Reconditioning

Discussion in 'Engine Gearbox' started by Spacecowboyuk, Nov 9, 2020.

  1. Hi all

    I've been struggling to find companies that are able to reliably recondition or supply Bosch or other OEM core units for mainly starter motors. After 3 false starts (naming no names but one is in the West Mids that gave me a proper run around for 2 weeks) where they promised a like for like Bosch replacement but was sent some aftermarket carp instead, I happened on this company based in Manchester:

    Andy is very helpful and fairly priced. In future, on a rotation basis, I expect to be using them again. Just thought I'd share. I'll update again im 6 months to comment on longevity.

    The only thing wrong at this point was the Bush. ID ok but OD too small.

    As always, Peter at Volksgoods is also a good go to.

    Hellikers in Bristol reconditioned my starter.
    Seemed like a top job.

    @Spacecowboyuk stripped it all down said rear bearings were ok so replaced the front end at a cost of £45

  8. That seems to be about the going rate give or take.

    The starter at the front of this thread was 76 delivered outright as I didn't have a core to trade in at this time. Again, probably fair.

    There is also a company in Borehamwood called unit exchanged. I’ve used them and was happy.

  10. I've used Teesside Start Parts before, including for batteries etc.
    Seem like genuine guys and fair prices.
