Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Rover 45 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 50,000 miles
Have year 2000 (X) Rover 45 manual 50,000 miles, that won’t start. When turn key only continues clicking sound from starter motor. Have cleaned, re secured and checked all earth connections at battery, body and starter motor. Checked all starter motor live connections ( all OK, spade connecter gets power when ignition on ). Have replaced started motor with new unit, but same problem. Have checked starter motor when removed from engine casing and all looks to be working OK when ignition is turned, motor engages and turns freely. Starter motor does not appear to be turning engin over. Also moved car in gear and fly wheel turns OK and all other belts ect appear to be OK.
