Re: Renault Clio 1.4 8v - Info on starting problems - HELPFUL!

Hiya...Noob here...I've read all the above and find it very helpful.... I'm in limbo at mo as mine is acting up.... After reading on here I've changed the TDC (looked a bit iffy anyway) but hasn't resovled my problem.... I used to wiggle the tickler wire to start car sometimes then eventually broke it off!!
Had someone re-weld back onto starter motor but problem keeps happening...

I seem to get the car working by tapping starter motor with a spanner...Hey presto it works every time (albeit a pain in the ass when under the bonnet in rain!)....however it is now taking a few extra taps to start so can we all agree I need a new starter motor??? MANY THANKS PEOPLE x
