Thanks for all the input and support, it’s much appreciated.

Managed to negotiate a discount with OPC so waterpump all in supply and fit is £888 which I don’t think is too bad based on what Alex paid his Indy.

They are also doing a minor service while it’s there.

Managed to get a couple of goodie bags for my kids with a teddy each, small thing but has brought a smile back to my tired face!

I’ve asked them for a price to see to the lazy crank issue, am I right in thinking this is a modified alternator wire? Any input here on solution and cost would be great before I receive their estimate.

Thanks again all, I’m a newbie but really enjoying this forum Thumb


Re the lazy crank issue, I think it could be the alternator/starter cable but also could be the starter itself or possibly the power cable which runs from the battery area at the front to the back of the car.

Battery was new a couple of months ago, still could still be the issue.

In better news.....seller offered to pay for all my costs last night including my hotel and my extra train fares today.

I didn’t ask and made it clear I wasn’t casting any accusations his way.

When he offered (over £300) I was floored and the money is already in my account!

That's great, as I said, still some honourable people left !

If hot start laziness only it's unlikely to be just the battery - sadly. Just had this fixed on my car and can't believe how quickly it turns over (and I have had the car since it 8k miles old). I have had 4 batteries over the years, all helped initially (as they would) but problem always came back. New starter and starter loom and bingo. Perfect. I might have got away with just the loom but while you are there....

I've just done the same on mine, new Bosch starter and starter loom, and as you say, Bingo, it's now perfect.

Hi, Part No. for tiptronic car is 99760701804 and for manual it's 99760701903.
They're listed on the Design911 website if you want to have a look.
Good luck.
