    Starter motor for 1.7DTi

    I need to replace the starter motor on my astra diesel, and have been quoted £85 for exchange for a recon motor. I live in the preston area but it seems to be the best i can find. Is this a reasonable price or should i keep searching. Im assuming its not a job i can tackle myself?
    cheers

    have you tried ebay?? got mine off there and seem to think it was a bit cheaper but it was a year ago and cant remember exact price now but it was also a recon but came with a yrs warrenty, i did mine myself but im pretty handy with a spanner, its arkward due to location up the back of the engine and can only be reached from below
