156 starter problems?
Hello guys, I need to ask some questions first to see if i can get some answers before i take my car to a mechanic. So, here goes nothing.
For the past month or so my car has been struggling to start a little bit, i thought it was a faulty battery (had it for not longer than two years) but it turned out the battery looks fine. This morning i went to drive it and it wouldn't start. The symptoms were exactly like a flat battery but a jump start didn't work and when i shorted the battery out to see if it has got juice, it sparked pretty bad.
Am i correct to think it's the brushes on the starter motor? I had this problem with my previous mercedes and went through the same things.
If it is the starter, does anyone have a rough clue to how much it will cost me to get it replaced on average?
Thanks in advance.
