My 1997 Audi A6 Quattro is not starting but making a clicking noise. It did not start even after I recharged the battery and it still made the same clicking noise!

mine 97 audi a6 did the same thing, jack up the front passenger side, remove the wheel, and hit the starter a few times with a bar, and she will crank! promising results!

Car turns over but does not start. Battery good

If it over heated, could have bad head gasket's, fill radiator with water, crank engine with radiator cap off, if water is push out of radiator while cranking, bad head gaskets', also remove spark plug's, crank engine if any water, bad head gasket, also when spark plug's removed, check for any water on them.If there is any water on plug's, bad head gasket, also could try doing a cylinder compression test, if bad compression, head gasket, no compression, wont start that way.

Change radiator

Hi ,
Yes you do have to remove the bumper and ,Air-con rad(do not disconect!!)move to offside carefully still attached and Power steering cooling pipe(do not disconect) move to nearside.Lots to undo but easy enough if car raised on axle stands or ramp.

Front end damage

Check with or - both are Audi salvage yards that can supply everything you need. Also go to and look through the classifieds - lots of people are selling parts there, and they're probably less money than the yards are.

THIS IS A BIG PAIN IN THE ****!!!!!!! i would definately reccommend getting the repair manual from any pepboys or autozone because there are several things that you have to do to get to the starter. This is to include taking the front bumper off moving the radiator and the front headlights forward, then taking out the alternator. All of which have little room to work in.
