Starter motor problem

hi, i have a 1.3 multijet punto on a 03 plate has anybody had a starter motor problem.The car has only done 23000 miles just wondering if it was a common fault on these engines as it seems to be a low mileage for this to occur.Is there anything i can do to cure it or do i need a new one
Thanks
shaun

Question Re: Starter motor problem

Does the motor sometimes work ? & does it usually fail after a fast run?

Re: Starter motor problem

i'd say starter solinoid sticking
try removing the starter and cleaning and grease the shaft then refit and try it out, if this doesn't work you probably need a new starter, get one from motor factors much cheaper than fiat
