    Starter motor?

    Hey All,

    Just wondering if anyone can confirm that the sound in the vid is my starter in the way out? Or what it may be?

    Sounds like the gear is not retracting from the ring gear when it starts. Might be able to get it repaired if thats the case. I would look at it ASAP as it may chip the gears on the flywheel.

    Put a long screwdriver or metal rod into the engine bay, touching the starter motor and get somebody to crank while keeping the other
    end of the rod to the ear. That way you can pin point the location of the noise better.
    Also try tapping the start with the same long rod while cranking/starting the engine and see if the screeching noise gets worse or better.
