Hi guys, my 2009 2.2 i-dtec engine clicks once when i try to start the car. I have narrowed it down to a starter motor. I had a look around the engine, but can't see where the starter is located. Any guidance would be appreciated. Also, is there any guides available how to replace one? Thanks
From the response that does sound like a poorly fitting battery terminal, as per the link supplied, but it would be interesting to know if the starter has the solenoid built in, or is an entirely different unit that might be better accessed.
If the latter then shorting the main terminals with the appropriate tool will confirm before taking things apart (or running a heavy duty cable up behind the engine for a direct connection to the battery)
