Alternator & Starter Motor Repairs – FAQs

  • How will I know if my starter motor is broken?

    A broken or faulty starter motor will have some pretty obvious warning signs. Keep an eye out for:

    • A grinding noise when driving
    • Smoke and as strong smell of burning
    • Difficulty starting when you turn the ignition
    • A clicking sound when starting the car
  • Can I drive my car with a faulty alternator?

    While you can drive short distances with a faulty alternator we do not recommend it. As the alternator gets weaker and weaker it cannot effectively charge the battery and this will slowly die. Once you notice the warning signs of a damaged alternator you should bring it to a garage for repair or replacement before the damage spreads throughout the engine.

  • How much does a new alternator or new starter motor cost?

    The price of repacking your starter motor or alternator will depend on the make and model of your vehicle and if you purchase a brand new or reconditioned part, both of which we have in stock. Contact Euro Clutch directly for a free quote.
