The starter is mounted on the flywheel housing on the engine’s right side.
During starting, a gear on the starter rotor shaft is moved axially so that it engages with the ring gear on the engine’s flywheel. The axial movement as well as the activation of the starter is controlled by a solenoid on the starter motor.
The starter solenoid in turn is connected via the start- er relay, which is activated when the starter key is turned to position III/the starter button is pressed.
