Hi,

My starter motor in my 2008 9-3 1.9 TiD 8v broke down recently. When I checked the starter motor it was full of diesel. The brushes inside the motor was completely destroyed because of the diesel.

I haven't found the place where the leak originates from. Any tips on where I should look?

i highly doubt its diesel being where the starter is located.... ie no where near the diesel system

it could be oil vapour from a leaking crank seal it could be dot4 from the csc or gbox oil leaking thru the csc seal but highly doubt its diesel imo
