Compare quotes and garage reviews for Starter Motor Repair in Burnley with Who Can Fix My Car.



Is the motor dead or merely making a clicking sound? Or is it turning but not 'catching'? It's likely that your starter motor will require rapid repair or even replacement to get your car up and running again. If you’re stuck on the drive you can employ a mobile mechanic, or get the garage to take a look at your car battery too to see if that is responsible for halting the engine.

●     The engine just will not crank

●     A grinding noise when starting up

+

How long does starter motor replacement take?
