If the starter clicks but does not turn then more than likely the starter needs to be replaced.

We don't have a wiring diagram for this vehicle as it is not offered here in the USA but we need to check voltage at the starter. One of the wires will have 12 volts all the time. The other wire will have 12 volts when cranking the engine.

If you do then you need to replace the starter.

Here are a couple guides that will help with this:

If you don't have 12 volts on the control wire when cranking the engine then you need to check the relay as that is the likely issue.

Again we don't have a manual so I can't supply the specifics on this by the process is the same.

Please run through this and let us know what you find. Thanks
