Answers :

Good indication of a bad starter. Is it just clicking or is it a grinding ugly noise?. The second is definately the starter.
If the noise is a whine/whirr the drive at the end of the starter is defective and will need replacement. These are replaceable but I would recommend complete starter replacement.
If the noise is a loud grinding/crunching noise this means the gear on the starter isn't meshing well with the gear on your engine flywheel. Continued use may damage the flywheel if it hasn't already if it is grinding.
