Starter motor is dead

Recommended Posts

My Hitachi S114 945 starter motor has died, I suspect it is the contact bushes. The S114 945 is a Lotus Evora only starter motor but I've heard that S114 943 bushes fit. Does anyone have experience/knowledge on this matter?


many thanks

Simon, per my comment on your FB thread I'd recommend going to a local specialist alternator and starter refurbisher.  They'll have all the info on parts and will do a much quicker job.  It'll be a bit more costly than you doing it (though less of your time and no skinned knuckles!) but cheaper than a main dealer just replacing the whole unit.
