  10. Hi guys as some of you saw I recently posted about a fusible,link problem which I have now repaired but I am now getting some odd noise I will explain as best I can what is going on as I am completely confused ok here goes I have a 2.0 hdi automatic now with the car in park handbrake on I slowly turn the steering wheel about quarter of a turn it sounds like the starter kicks in as soon as you left go of the steering wheel it stops what's stranger is if I do the same thing with the car in any gear it doesn't do it only when it's in park any ideas as I have never heard anything like this before
  11. Just as an update I have replaced the starter and also the positive lead from the battery to the fuse box under the bonnet and car starts and runs perfect
  12. Hi coastline thank you for your reply but it's not that cable I need to replace or repair its the main positive cable that goes from the engine bay through the bulkhead into the car and connects to the battery that's the one with the fusible link at the battery end
  13. Hi thanks simple glad to hear it wasn't too difficult to replace starter just hope somebody has some words of wisdom on the fusible link issue
  14. Hi guys and girls I have a c8 2.0 hdi 2005 diesel auto and recently had a problem where my starter motor failed and in the process blew the fusible link on the battery positive lead has anyone ever replaced either the whole lead or done a homemade repair if so any tips or ideas without paying £135 for a new lead thanks
