Hello,

I've a 93 SL600, and she won't turn start. Starter seems to turn over for about 1/10 second, then the solenoid clicks. Battery is fully charged. I've got the Bosch trouble shoot guide - is it easy to replace the starter on the SL600?

Thanks!

Jimbo

Yes, we're VERY lucky - as we won the SL600 in a raffle! $100 raffle ticket won a '93 with less than 5k miles when we picked it up.

But the task at hand -

Are the bolts readily accessible for a replacement?
Is there much other dis-assembly required to remove the starter?

Thanks!

The only disassembly required to R&R the starter is the removal of plastic panels from under the car. You may also need to remove one of the chassis stiffening struts -- no big deal.

Hint: turn the steering all the way to the left.
