    Default WTD 1994 Peugeot 306 s16 starter motor

    Thank you for the help so far. My project is a little stuck at the moment. Can't drive the car at the moment it was a suspected fuel pump relay but I believe it might the starter. Car clicks when trying to turn over. Battery is fine. To that end does anyone have a starter I can buy from them? Thanks in advance.

    Check with the Peugeot wrecker in Lowood QLD. Has most models of starters and cheap/free freight. Find them on Gumtree .
    Or take starter out and take to auto electrical to test.
    Good luck

    Oz80,
    You might try EAI at Thornleigh to see what they charge for starters - maybe they have something suitable for early 306 S16.

    Thanks John, I did some reading on the forum. The information explains the process of removing the starter very well. However, nothing really prepares you for how big the job actually is...

    Buy a new one from EAI, a couple of hundred or so. Common to 205 306 and 405 at least.

    I beleive s16 is different to normal 306. S2 mi16, s16 and gti6 all interchange. But the solenoid is in a different place on the standard cars and they dont fit. I tried it on my s2 mi16 years ago!

    I pulled one off a S2 Mi16 last week, I can check with other ones I have. It is alight weight one which may make a difference.

    I've managed to remove everything. I now have access to the starter motor. Having some trouble getting the starter motor out now. Does anyone have an pics of this process they could share with me? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Graham,
    I have a feeling that the hex bolts have been replaced over time. Only one hex bolt which I have removed. The other bolts appear to be a 16mm bolt. One is very tight. I had to take the car off the jack stands through fear of car falling off whilst I was trying to remove the bolt. Oxytorch?

    Tap it with a hammer firmly to jolt and break thread. This has added advantage of closing up socket making hex tool nice and tight to remove it. They do freeze up with no thread lubricant, a good thing to when refitting.

    At this point just overhaul starter and reuse, it will be the solenoid sticking, reverse it by 180 degrees and reuse.

    It has a thrust surface, a little fine oil will not go astray either. All you need is a small torx fitting to strip it down. Simple job, clean the starter solenoid as you do this. Degrease everythiung.

    Removing back of starter motor shows brushes which should have plenty of life, spray with brake cleaner liberally whilst holding it to drain carbon laden liquid out to clean commutator and brush dust. Did this on mien before breakfast this morning, got to get a life but hey presto rebuilt starter.

    Nothing to lose.

    Failing that the one I put in this morning has had two of it mount threads stripped so has to come out again, I have spares so your welcome to it, just undo head of it swap with yowr old one and you will be in business. You're well advised to fit a starter relay whilst in there to relieve the key and the arcing that the starter will cause. This carbons up the key mechanism, another failure point. Very easy to do and happy to advise how.

    Thanks Matthew,
    Advice on the relay would be really helpful. Finally got the starter out. I'm going to start cleaning it tomorrow. It's got a fair amount of carbon in it. When I say fair amount I mean it's caked in it!

    No problem, read this post Starter motor relay install

    Clean the starter up, reverse the solenoid plunger to share wear, clean the commutator on starter itself. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the link.
    Now this is a stupid question and I have been taking photos whilst I remove parts for when I put them back together. But taking photos of the starter was difficult.... Does anyone have a pic of where the wires go when reconnecting the starter motor...

    You mean inside the cover connected to the brushes? Can do, two of them downstairs ready to go.

    Sorry my message wasn't very clear. The wires that give the starter power. I've forgotten which wires connect and where on the starter motor. Does anyone have a pic of the starter in the car with all the wires connected?

    Oh dear had to pull it apart again, here goes. Send me a pm with your email or mobile number and I call to explain?

    The main connector is a metal plate with a hole to mount the to the bigger of the two connectors, the little one with the 8mm nut is the signal wire from the key.
