You can, but its a bit tricky if you don't work with cars. A cheaper way would to be to look on craigslist in your area you might always find something on there. If you don't then your going to have to shell out the $$. Most of it is labor fees anyways.
-I look forward to your post

Need to know how to replace the starter on the 1997 audi a8 quattro

Well Mich, first you need to elevate the car to get to the starter; remove the undercover to expose the motor. Then you need to remove some parts to get to the starter. After that, it's pretty straight forward. Good luck.

Audi a4 2.5 tdi quattro sport, was holding back then just stopped

More than likely the fuel pump. This may sound stupid but take something and give your gas tank a bit of a thump. What year is the car?

Turn signal solenoid is located where for a 1997 Quattro A4?

The relay is built into the hazard light switch. The part is $40 or less at a dealership. It's a common failure. I do a lot of Audi repairs and keep four or five on hand at all times just because of the frequency with which they fail.

1996 audi a4 transmission hard shifting

Get the transmission scanned at the dealership. If it has incorrect gear ratio code stored, it needs a transmission. Only the torque convertor or valve body can be replaced for any repairs at the dealership, so it needs to be diagnosed correctly. Any authorized ZF transmission repair shop can also repair them, more than the Audi dealerships can, so thats another alternative.

Ignition Switch

Heheh, no sweat on trying to help you out last time, and I appreciate the info regarding what you did and how you did it. I'm sure it'll come in handy sooner or later, as there are about a half-dozen of us here that all hang together and work on our A4s:) Glad you figured the problem out and I'm assuming you were able to clean the terminals and get it to work again rather than having to replace parts. Always nice when it happens.

Nice fix man - glad you're back on the road again:)
