    So my car barely turns over...sounds like the starter needs to be replaced.....it just barely cranks over......can't find jack shit on the Inet on where the fucker is located......nothing on the Audi Forums..though i made a post...

    i dont want to take it to the dealer cause..well for obvious reasons, they will nail me for 500-800 dollars....i can get the part online for $150....

    Anyone have ideas where this fucker is located.....jfc i hate 2009 so fucking bad..i really do....

    And the hits just keep on coming...

    check your charging system first
    autozone will do it for free
    just make sure your battery is good and your alternator is charging it properly before you buy a starter

    It'll most likely be under the engine. jack up the car and look for a roundish looking thing sticking out from the back bottom side of the engine near the transmission.

    edit... thats vague, but I don't know audi's.
