two bolts hold it in mate... you'd find it almighty hard to get "out of alignment"...

if it ticks it sound like the solenoid ticking as though you have a flat battery or dirty connections... If not I'd would suspect a wrong starter (came from a different vehicle) or a dead starter motor...

Cheers,
Tim
