Probably just the solenoid, I think you can buy kits for them on ebay.. I know they do diesel kits, just not sure about the KV6...

Kits are available for the V6 - Link - and the Diesel. But not the K1.8

Yep, this is common. Mine needed doing at 50k and it was an easy job taking 30 mins all in! I have done two now.

Repairkits is the crowd on eBay to get the kit from, make sure to specify wether Auto or Manual.

It helps if you have a 3/8 socket set with a short and long extention and a universal joint. You can do it without removing the air box as well.

Battery out, battery box out, 3 bolts on the starter and a couple of wires off and that's it. Solenoid cap off, clean, replace side contacts, insert new plunger, reassemble and re install into car. A nice job with a satisfying feeling that you did it yourself and saved £300 quid on a new starter!
