Having problems with your Ford Focus ?
Solenoid on my focus is clicking but stater is not turning over. When the bolts are loosen the starter will start the engine. I think the starter needs shimed, but not sure this is the problem.
You are right. Shim it out a little until the starter turns the engine freely. It's a try it and see process. Install shims one at a time because if you shim it out too far it will strip the teeth off the gears in time. Hope this helps.
