my Forester's starter motor needs replacing. Can I replace the old one: 23 23300 AA380 NO. 8120 Type MOOOT81681
with this one: 24 23300 AA390 NO. 8424 Type MOO1T84481
The replacement starter is from an automatic whereas my car is a manual, but the parts guy I bought the replacement from said that was fine. He said not to replace a 25 starter with the 24, but he didn't say anything about a 23 which mine has turned out to be.
Any help greatly appreciated :)
