Are you sure the starter is lined up properly.I had this recently on a Clio where the locating dowel had not been re-fitted and the starter motor was slightly out of alignment....

Also,is the starter OK when you test it of the car?.

Was it a new starter or a second hand one?.

Noisy starter

I've seen this prob on numerous occasions - where either the dowel is missing or fitted in the wrong location.:)

Noisy starter

When tested out of the car is the pre-engage solenoid operating correctly - does it throw the gear in and out cleanly and release fully when power is disconnected. Does the starter sound if its continuing to engage when the engine starts ot is it noisy when attempting to engage the flywheel ring. There is a possibilty the ignition switch is faulty and not releasing properly.:)
