    Default VZ V8 starter motor

    Hi there

    I've just had the delight of being stranded after my starter motor decided to die on me.
    Just wondering if $450 is an average price for and after market brand new part plus labour for my VZ SS V8
    Or am I getting the damsel in distress price??

    I just today got quoted $450 to have mine changed in my VZ too. apparently its 4 hours labour.
    Still seems a little steep though!
    Is it easy enough to DIY for someone who isn't a complete Revhead?

    4 hours to change a starter motor? Can do it in 1. Unbolt the starter form underneath, remove the wiring, unbolt the RH exhaust manifold off the head, lever it up a bit. manouvre the starter out.

    Much easier than removing the RH engine pipe and disconnecting the steering linkage.

    Oh, and disconnect the battery first.
