Car wouldn't start yesterday and its just ticking really fast when trying to start. I am pretty sure its the starter motor as this has happened before but my question is can I use the starter motor from any v6 mgr?

Have you checked all earth leads on the engine/box and also the 12v mains to the solenoid? I would have thought any KV6 starter would fit but not 100% sure.

I think only v6 zs/45, I'll check on that, but I think the zt was different.

Car has been away for a few days hasn't it, like Fred said first thing to check is the battery.

As Pete says there are several choices for the starter, basically any ZS/45/400/ZR/25/200/F/TF with the PG1 box so any 1800cc or above - part number is Part No. NAD101340E http://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-NAD101340E

Thanks talkingcars!!
I have got a cheapo starter motor on it's way as money is very tight this month, what with spending out on Alton Towers and Ugg Boots and crap for the missus B-Day. How do I check the battery? Do I just stick my multimeter on the terminals? If so what should it be reading?

I agree with ritchy would deffo go for the battery first could you not try jump leads on it that way if it turns over you know then the starter is ok

Jump leads was one of the first things I did and still getting just click click click, I really cant afford a new battery so what second hand ones can I use if it turns out to be that?
I will then buy a new one at the end of the month.
Haven't got a trickle charger either so charging it for a few hours is a no go.
