    Question Starter motor problems or something worse?

    I get a grinding noise when turning the ignition as though I am holding it down for to long, it doesn't happen all the time possibly 1 in 3.

    it's not just me either as I've had other people attempt it, my assumptions are it's simply just a starter motor on the way out but wanted to get a second opinion encase there's anyone else out there that's found the problem before and it's been something worse?

    Mines doing exactly the same, wonder if its just the solonoid not releasing properly ? Thinking of whipping mine off and having a look
