Starter

When looking for and choosing your 3 SERIES starter motor, it is important to pay close attention to a couple of important points: the shape of the part, the size of the ring gear, the number of fixing holes and the voltage.

The replacement of a starter can be a rather complicated task for an inexperienced mechanic so if you're not sure of what you're doing, don't hesistate to have someone assist you.
The most common causes of a 3 SERIES starter replacement are broken solenoids, a faulty ignition switch, too much power in the wires, or failing battery connections between the negative battery terminal and the engine.
If when you hear a loud clicking noise when turning the key in the ignition switch to start the engine, you’re likely to have a starter motor problem.

To determine as well as possible which starter references are suitable for your 3 SERIES, we recommend you enter your registration number or select engine type of your Bmw 3 SERIES in the drop down menu.
