    Icon6 A Big Paris Rhone Starter Motor

    Are there any starter motor experts out there? Do you have any idea what vehicles were fitted with a Paris Rhone 12V starter motor D11E 156 5, D9. It is twice the size of starters fitted to Renault cars.
    Yes! seriously - I saw it last week.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Probably from a Pug 504 or 505 XD2 or XD2S diesel. Can't remember the model numbers but both my 505s had Paris Rhones and the auto-elecs say the same thing. "What the hell is that off?"

    I recentley went through a "busted starter motor phase" just had no luck what so ever.
    I have 2 starters for my R17 one is a Paris Rhome the other is a BOSH.
    They both had the same problem sometimes it would work, the other time nothing.
    They have both been rebuilt a number of times, and just seem to $hit them selfs after 8-10 mths.

    a mth ago I sent my Bosh unit down to these guys, and they fixed me up with a Hi Tourque unit which works a treat. They can pretty much manufacture them for any car.

    as you would expect they are a bit $$$

    just a thought

    Reno17,

    FWIW, we recently found that on a couple of our cars, the wire carrying the current to the starter solenoid was degraded internally and as a result was only (in one case) carrying 9 Volts to the starter solenoid. As a result, when the solenoid was activated, instead of snapping in as fast as it should, it was just dragging a bit and as a result the actual contacts that are pulled in by the solenoid were getting burnt. My guess is that there's a possiblity that this problem is more common on French cars than they care to admit to due to their reputation with their electrics and this could explain why you've been doing starter motors at the rate you have; not so much the actual motors as such but possibly causing premature failure of the solenoids.
