    Default Knackered Starter Motor??

    About 1 in 5 or so starts, the starter doesnt seem to disengage quickly when I release the key, causing a sort of whining noise.
    The car is still in warranty until April, but is this likely to fail on me.
    Any ideas?

    Went on 3rd Jan, but they couldnt check it b4 I went on holiday in it. Done 1500 miles since then and its done it about 4 or 5 times.
    What is it that causes the noise?

    Normally a removal and clean of clutch dust of the spigot removes this issue.
