looks like more money on maintenance for my little clio
right as of recent sometime when turning the ingnition the starter will sound pause for a while then carry on till the engine fires up, this never happens when first starting her up but but say after stopping leaving the lights on and then restarting the engines. sometime the engine does not even turn over.turn the key and nothing happens then when it does decdied to turno over it seems to struggle a bit
does this sound like a starter motor on its way out and does anyone know how much it will cost to replace witha new or second hand unit. please dont tell me it hard as a bit skint at the moment. or is it something else.
do not think its a battery as every other electrical thing still works and i did think it was a prb with the immobiliser but its not that either leaving me to think it the starter motor
