hey guys, recently my car has been making a really odd sound on start up..mostly when it's cold..it's not the belt at the front, it sounds kinda like it might be coming through the extractors :S

the sound im talking about is between 5 and 7 seconds in the vid :)

Starter motor is stuffed.
The pinion is not retracting quick enough and is hitting on the ring gear of the flywheel.
Take the starter out and I reckon you will see chewed bits at the end of the gear.

How long is a piece of string? Depends on how bad it is already , how often you will be starting it etc.

it's only just started making the noise and it never happens on a warm day and only goes for about a second not stop...the noise you heard in the vid is about as long as it goes for...when it's warm it dosnt make it at all
