hi, this thread is very interesting as my starter appears to have packed in!! it has been starting 'ok' until today when i went to start so i tried jumping it from another car as this worked the other day but still didnt work so i cleaned and checked the connections, but still wouldnt start so i have been bump starting it.
Is this the same problem as others are having? the solenoid is sticking and needs cleaned or is it a case of replace the starter and solenoid? If its a case of remove it and clean it, i have no idea where it is in the car, barely know what one looks like. Also is this a difficult job? how low does it usually take to remove it?

many thanks
