Default Car won’t turn on most times

Every time I try starting my car, it just clicks but engine doesn’t start. After 4/5 tries, sometimes it decides to work. What could be the problem here? The starter motor or cam shaft perhaps?

Car is 207, sport.

If it's not trying to turn over then yeah something to do with starter motor. Maybe bad connection if it's intermittent. Or maybe it's just the motor is starting to fail. Cam shaft nothing to do with that.

Assuming the battery is fully charged and you’ve got 12v and a good earth at the motor when being cranked it sounds as though the solenoid is playing up hence the clicking.

Had that problem a while back on another car, probably worn brushes on the starter motor. Tap it with a hammer to confirm that is the problem. It should start after you tap it a few times.


Have a look from 6:05 to see what I mean.

Can anyone tell me which starter motor part number I need? I’m not sure which one I need to buy.

Car is Peugeot 207, sport, 1.6, 16V, 2007. 2 door.
