Starter motor technical information

 

VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER / CARAVELLE MK IV 1990-2003

 

Affected part number: QS2635

 

Due to a vehicle fault, this starter motor is prone to burn out.

 

The cause of such extreme damage is likely to be caused by the natural

failure of the vehicles Heater Plugs.

 

When the Heater plugs fail, the driver assumes that the fault is

elsewhere and proceeds to re start the car several times. As we all know, with prolonged attempts, the starter motor will overheat and burn out.

 

There are common, obvious tell tale signs that the starter motor has burnt out. These are:

 

A strong smell of burning. The armature is likely to have exploded and when shaken, loose metal fragments will be visible in the nose cone.

Drive teeth chewed up by the vehicles ring gear.

Clutch Pulley’s

 

Clutch Pulley’s are fitted to the later models of Volkswagon alternators, they are prone to failure.

The failing of a clutch pulley can occur for a number of reasons, the two main reasons are:

            Failure of the cars automatic tensioner

            Belt flap (from the fan belt)

 

In addition to the above, a clutch pulley can fail due to incorrect fitting of the stretch belts.

How do I know if my clutch pulley has failed?

            The alternator could be excessively noisy in operation

            The shaft would be worn (although not easily visible)

           

Customers often query how the cars automatic tensioner can cause a clutch pulley to fail. We always advise them that clutch pulley and tensioner are serviceable items and should be changed at regular intervals. (This information is according to OE manufacturers specifications

The Alternator must not be removed from the vehicle unless removed complete with the alternator support.
