Anyone replaced a starter motor?

Anyone replaced a starter motor in the Evora?

Can't seem to find a guide in the Evora manual with regards to which parts to remove to access the starter.

Is it a case of just trying to remove the airbox as I go?

Should I aim to replace the motor from the top by removing the airbox or should it be done underneath by removing the undertray?

Thanks

Are you in the UK?   I would expect a starter motor to last 6 years at least. https://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/regulation/sale-of-goods-act

It's super easy to get to with the airbox removed...

I'd be going back to that dealer.

18 months is unacceptable quality (i.e. unfit for sale).

For sure but as the lotus dealer said they never known a starter motor to fail and certainly not two in short time ?

anyway I put it down to my bad luck and just waved it off on the back of a trailer on its way to lotus

I did have a long conversation with PJS who did the warranty work on behalf of Snows and they were supplied the part from Snows.

i don’t know which part was given if it was brand new or reconditioned ? It’s so much hassle and time consuming trying to get an answer and in the end the part carries only a 12 month guarantee so in the end it’s just my bad luck ?
