Having a few problems with this one. First of all, the ignition
switch failed on Saturday (wouldn't spring back from START position).
I replaced the ignition switch yesterday, but I now get a horrible
grinding noise when I switch the engine on - as if the starter isn't
retracting. I will turn the engine manually to see if there's any
visible damage to the flywheel teeth, but I think the starter motor
And here's the problem: I can't see any bolt heads on the front of
the starter motor: looking at it from underneath the front of the
car, what I can see is a semicircular end to what should (?) probably
be a bolt head. Anyone come across anything similar? Could the
bolt head have been partly sheared off?
thanks in advance for any suggestions.
