My m5 want start

Turn the key and all what happens is I can hear is the starter motor whizzing away and that's it the engine not trying to turn over.
Tried it a few time but no joy :(

Any ideas

its probably the shaft that doesn't come forward anymore and hooks up on the flywheel..

it freespins.

ebay is your friend for a remanufactured one..the go pretty cheap. around 80-150$ .

the m5 uses the same as;


1) 530I 1994 - 1995 3.2 liter
2) M5 2000 - 2002 5.0 liter
3) 540I 540IT 1994 - 2002 4.0 or 4.4 Liter
4) 740I 740IL 1993 - 2002 4.0 or 4.4 Liter
5) 840CI 1994 - 1997 4.0 or 4.4 Liter
and the x5 and z8 use them also..

2-1539-BO
PMGR Starter for Bosch
1.7 kW, 12 Volt, CW Rotation
Design: PMGR (Permanent Magnet Gear Reduction)
Drive Teeth: 9

so plenty off options to find one i would say.​
