Gt starter solenoid issue


Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue with my GT engined coupe S. Somehow my starter solenoid has inexplicably came loose from the starter motor and all 3 bolts have been lost! Anyone know what size the bolts are? Look like m5 but iv no idea what length they are. I don't want to have to get another starter just for the bolts.

As the solenoid is item 11, it's either item 13 as Nige said or it isn't the solenoid that's come loose?

Item (19) in the diagram are the 'through bolts' that hold the starter motor together - If you have lost these, then the complete starter motor will fall apart. If item (13) are lost, then the solenoid will no longer be attached to the starter motor, but may well stay, more or less in position.

Any ideas where I can buy them new? Google came up with two UK websites but they are both out of stock!
