Re: 05 Kangoo 1.6 Auto Starter Motor
Just an update for anyone else who has to tackle the job.
Access to the bolts is a real pain thanks to Renault, but if you know how to get access then I think you could do the job in 2/3hrs.
Remove the expansion tank and any other brackets which prevent access to the bolts, and then use the bolt holes to secure tie wraps which pull the wiring loom away and give access.
If you disconnect the grey connector and the sensor connections you can access underneath, there is enough play to get to the bolts.
There is a connector to the solenoid which is hidden, but once the starter is loose there is plenty of room to turn it and access the bolt.
Starter is held in with 3 13mm bolts accessed from above, the solenoid has a 10mm nut accessed from under the wheel arch, and an 8mm nut (hidden) which you can remove from underneath.
