1989 W124 starter goes "click-click"
Friends - searched on "starter" and did not get my answer. Yesterday when I went to put our 1989 300TE (187,000 miles) in the garage it would not start. The starter makes a "click-click-click..." sound but does not turn the motor.
Have never dealt with a starter on a MB before, so just wanted to verify that the starter is the likely culprit and NOT some relay/circuit (OVP anyone) between the key and the starter.
I also assume replacement of the starter is a candidate for an experienced DIY'er -
TIA for your time -
