ok i posted in this catergorie because my problem is with the starter motor, which attaches to the gearbox, so i put it in the gearbox section cause i couldnt find anywhere else
well i had my car in at the mechanics because the flywheel bolts had snapped off so they fixed that for me,

i drove the car home and now it wont start,

i can clutch start the car down a hill

but when i turn the key to start the key like normal all i hear is the starter motor whizz and nothing else.

does this mean that it could have come lose and come off, if so the service peoples are going to get blasted tomorrow.

what else would cause this anything?
