Hi, I have a 1991 bmw 316i. I haven't moved it from the position it is in now for over a year. It was working perfect when I left it where it is now. I tried to turn it on the other day and it wont work, I recharged the battery etc but it just wont work. As opposed to cranking the engine just ticks. I know it must be something to do with the starter motor. I was just wondering if you could help by letting me know if there is anything I can do manually to get it started? Thanks. Richie ;)

I am going to assume you have replaced the battery instead of just charging it. A battery left sitting for a year will most likely be as dead as a hammer.
