Does anyone have instructions for the removal/check of the starter in a 450 CDI (2006)?
Cheers,
Dan

Drop the engine. Using the factory engine lowering bolts is very helpful.

Before going there, try removing the electrical connectors first, maybe it is just corrosion.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the response. That's precisely what I would like to do (check connections), The starter is working, but I have to turn the ignition key 2-3 times before something happens. From what I have read in this forum, loose/oxidized connections could be the cause.
I'm looking for a guide on how to drop the engine; I have searched all over the forums and only have found instructions for the gas engine of later years.
Cheers,
Merry Xmas
Dan
