I tend to agree about the starter. I'm going to do some preliminary investigation underneath the car to assess how easy/difficult/impossible it is to get the starter out. I've reached the stage where i have decided that I think I'm going to have to pull the engine anyway to do the timing chains/tensioner. Apart from the rattle on starting it ticks constantly on idle and sometimes it sounds like a bag of bolts until its been driven gently for a little bit. I don't know how long the engine will run with the duff tensioners but I do know that it will be catastrophic if they fail completely so it needs to be done at some point.

Anyway thats all off topic, but if the engine gets pulled soon I will do the starter then and live with the hot start issue until then.
