The Problem:

Hi all,
Please can anyone help? Car starts perfect most times, now and again (twice this week) wont start, just a clicking noise.. Had to grab some random guys and ask for a push.. :( is this alternator or starter motor? Or something else.. Hate going to the garage as I swear they see me coming and rub their hands together on my approach..;) I cant tell where the clicking is coming from, with the hood up it sound like it's coming from all over the engine bay..:@
Please can anyone advise.. Battery checked and was tiptop :)

Suggested Solution

MORE THAN LIKELY THE STARTER MOTOR, IF IT'S BEEN PUSH STARTED AND POWER HAS NOT DIED AFTER SOME TIME DONT THINK IT WOULD BE THE STARTER MOTOR
