Hi I have a renault clio 1992 J reg automatic 1.4 Rt car and my starter motor is playing up. I have to wack it with a hammer then it will start but as soon as I turn the car off it wont start without me having to hit it again. Now this time last year I called the rac out and he hit the motor and its worked ever since about a year, so do I need to buy a new one? Or just take it in to a garage for expection? Or will they try and rip me off and say I need a new one as I have called a few garages and they have said it's going to cost alot as they have to remove the drive shaft. Please help!

Do you
have the same problem?

Replace the starter motor. It will only get worse and eventually not work at all !
