    Yeah I was having problems before with the starter. there is no turn over.there is a clicking noise.

    And I would like to know where the startere is located in te engine so that I may possibly replace or take it out and to a mechanic to inspect.

    Were you having any starting problems before? Earlier, if you would go to start the car and once in a while you'd get a "click" with no turn over, or the starter would stop before the car was started, then your starter would have been developing a problem (the brushes inside the motor eventually wear out, making for an uneven connection).

    Was anything left on that might have drained the battery?

You would need to get a repair manual for a schematic to know where the starter motor is located. In truth, replacement is not very complicated--you simply unbolt the old unit and bolt in a new replacement unit. But, you may have to disassemble other components to reach the starter motor. It is likely more costly to have your starter motor repaired. I suggest getting a new one or refurbished. Some places will have a "core charge", whereby you get that money refunded when you send them your old starter. In the end, it is cheaper and easier than getting your starter motor fixed. Good luck.

1995 mercedes e320 does not start. The engine does not catch.


1- If engine is not cranking but hearing a click then

a- Problem with battery.

Try to jump start then if battery is over 5 years, replace battery

b- Solenoid works but not the starter.

Need to repalce the starter.

2- If engine is cranking but not catching on, then the problem is with the Bendix part. it is an intergrated part of the starter.

Replace the starter.

Did you try starting it in neutral? There is a safety interlock for starting the car in park or neutral. Have them check that.

I have 2003 E320 and it wont start I beieve that its the starter. BUt I dont know where the starter is. Cna you tell me where it is?


I don't remember where exactly it is but starters are always mounted on the transmission bellhousing, either on the left or right side.
This being said, starters are expensive... I would recommend you obtain a manual and do some testing before just "bolting in" parts 'till you manage to fix it!!

E320 mercedez no start after replace alternator


is the battery still strong?

i'm just wandering why did you replace the alternator ? ( the battery could have been weak )

or while replacing the alternator, you could have forgotten some essential wires that is connected to the starter.

please verify that all wires prior to replacement of the alternator have been restore back to its original location.

tnx 4 using fixya,
