Replaced Starter in XF today.... Ring gear trouble!
I got round to replacing the starter in my xf today after it was grinding/jamming every now and again. After the old starter was removed...i saw that some teeth on the ring gear were shiny and "worn down" a bit...now...the old shagged starter would have damaged the ring gear...
ive been told that if i dont replace the ring gear my new starter could possibly become damaged, and/or its only a matter of time before the gear fails.
How much is it to replace the ring gear??...it looks like a big job to me :-(
