Hi,

I never replaced a starter motor before and my starter just went out on my 2000 Land Rover Discovery series 2. (Times are tough right now and I cant bring to a mechanic) I am looking for a step by step guide (with illustartions please) on replacing my starter, and what tools will be needed (so I dont need to make 5 trips)
Any input is greatly appreciated

First of all thank you very much for your donation.I don't have access to tell me what size the bolt's are but it only pay's a half an hour to replace it so it should be easy to replace.Do you have tool's or do you have to buy some and need to know what to buy?

Thank you for the fast response!
I have some tools, but I read that the starter is held in place by allen screws and positioned deep. I olny have some L shaped allen wrenches, and I dont think that will work.
I read that some tool extensions are needed to reach the allen screws that are fastening in the starter, so I would need to purchase that and wanted to make sure I was getting the right tools (and all of them) on my first trip.
Thanks soo much for the response!
P.S Can you direct me to the web link w/ that diagram its hard to make out in your response?

Thanks again!

I can't give you the website link where I got the information for you. It's a pay site that has a user name and password that our website use's to get information to it's user's. Sorry about that I did email you the information you should be able to read it better if you can't please let me know and I will do all I can to make it better for you. Now as far as allen bolt's holding in the starter I would look for yourself and see if that's true. You won't be able to use those L shaped allen wrenches to take them out if you disconnect the battery though you might be able use those wrenches to figure out what size you need. It's going to be a metric size probably at least a 10mm or bigger but that's just a guess. You will need a allen socket to take it out and put it back in. You will also need a extension also I would say at least a 6 or 8 inch one and a ratchet and some smaller socket's to take the wire's off the starter. But the main thing is to get a flash light and take a look at the starter for yourself and see how it's held in allen bolt's or normal one's.
