    Engine removal Volvo EC15 Excavator

    Hi all.
    I am new to the forum, and to working on the machine . I have a problem with the starter motor , I am led to believe that the engine has to be removed to replace it. I would appreciate any information, help, members of the forum can give me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Quess the starter is similar than in the -15B. Replaced mine as the stator circuit short circuited to the ground (cover). The starter took huge current and just barely rotated. Tested mine with a clamp ammeter.

    What are the symptoms ?

    HAve a search on here about doing this .. there are several threads about it. You dont need to take it right out, slackening the mount tray and moving it forward gives you just enough room, its getting the exhaust off that is the problem, which givess access to the starter

    Heres one I did https://www.plantandconstruction.co....hlight=starter

    Yes. Have changed the starter and it is easy when you dismantle the exhaust, which is not that easy hardest part being the 15 mm nuts holding the silencer located a few miles inside the engine compartment. Have fun.
