My starter motor solenoid is dead, and apparently is not available to purchase separate from the rest of the starer.

Can anyone confirm whether starter motors from BMWs with the same M57 engine (i.e. 730, 530, X5, X3, etc.) will work on the TD6 L322? Beemers are a lot more plentiful on junkyards in these parts.

There seem to be a few different brands (Valeo, Bosch, Denso, etc.) and configurations out there, but I assume they all have the same 2.2 kW output, dimensions and bolt pattern?

Guess I will shed some light on this, in case anyone else wonders.

I purchased a 2nd hand (remanufactured) Denso starter from an '04 M57 engined BMW X3, and can attest to the starter motor itself being significantly smaller in overall dimensions. Accordingly, I would assume the power output of the motor is lower as well. Unfortunately, I have yet to find any specs on the Denso, but I know for a fact the factory unit is 2.2kW.

Solenoid on the other hand, is identical.
