    Default HELP!! car wont turn over!!!

    Just been thru to my mate's house all was well..........

    Got in my car to come home and nothing, just a click when i turn the key.
    The battery is fine all electrics working, doors, windows Hid's everything. But when i went to start CLICK from what sounds like where the starter motor should be. no engine light or anything, so got my mates to give me a push and she fired up no bother. Got home turned her off, went to start her again and CLICK, is this going to be a starter motor???? Wife is going nuts! as she is ment to be going to the xfactor live tour on sunday and need to get it sorted by then or i will be hung! Please help!

    well tried the jumpleads at my mates, and did nout. worked with cars for years def not a flat battery. sounding stupid here but from what i can see the starter is right at the back of the engine by the manifold can barely see it with a torch! also noticed a relay in the fusebox was getting warm. a yellow one. any insight on that?

    put it in 3rd and rock car forwards and backwards a few times it might free it ( for the life of me I cant remember what the bit is called that spins out to spin the flywheel) but it might just be some dirt

    dont know about relay

    drop the starter and fire a set of jump leads on it see if it spins do this from a sep battery if it dont spin see if you can soak the shaft etc in wd40 or penatrating spray oil it may get it going but will only be a short temp fix mate you will ether need to overhall the starter or get a re con 1
