Re: 1989 Audi 90 Q thrust bearing.

My father, my sister, and I all drive a 10v 90quattros. Each one of our cars has gone
through 1-2 starters since we bought these cars. It is however, the same starter as a 5000
series. I have done a clutch on a 4kq, which must be similar, it was very time consuming
removing the trans but not entirely difficult.
