Broken bits already!

Didn't even make it off the trailer when this little gem happened on my port engine.

Turned the key and got a clunk whizzzzzz.

Good old Etec starter reduction gears. 1 cog is minus 2 teeth and the other cog has split in 2.

Hope its not one of those years!

RIBase
Only saving grace, is it happened on the trailer. Are considering replacing in pairs?
