I had a look at the part numbers for the petrol and diesel starter motors and there is a list of different numbers for both the petrol and the diesel. I think there are quite a few different starter motors fitted to the various C3 models, all similar, but with some subtle differences.

I don't know which parts are interchangeable.

There are plenty of C3 diesel starters on ebay and there is also RC3D's topic in the tips section on replacing the brushes in the starter motor on a diesel C3.

And euro car parts have C3 starter motors from about £85.
