Hi Sue, i would have it checked out, but if you say theres a clicking under the bonnet, i take it this clicking happens when your trying to start it? but it doesn't start?,if this is the case it sounds very like the solenoid on your starter motor to me,so it might be the case its time for a new starter motor??,what i would do to start with is checking all the connections are tight at the battery and starter motor first and see how you get on from there,i hope this helps,all the best Donald
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
