Re: 156 starter problems.. help please
hitting it can work if the problem is the starter motor solenoid. when that is the problem the engine doesn't turn over.
your post suggests your engine is turning over, so the starter motor cant be the problem. is that the case? does the engine turn over or not?
the starter motor is under the engine at the back, at the side of the engine that meets the gearbox. you cant miss it, there isnt anything else there.
these days it is less common to replace the solenoid seperately, most people opt for a scrapyard or recon starter motor. this is because it is increasingly difficult to find someone who sells the solenoids.
