Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
Firstly i would suggest putting the car into nuetral and getting a few freinds to help you push it into a car bay , with the key on to ignition but not start so you unlock the steering , your starter can some times fail due to several things , like ingnition barrel , imobalizer , and starter solinoid , starter motor itself , if your a very sure that it is the starter motor ask a passer by to give it a tap with a hammer first , or if your car is manual , place it into gear with thre ham brake off and rock the car backwards and forwards a little then retry starting , sometimes these two things will allow you to disengage the starter gear from the gearbox fly wheel , if you know of a mechanicly minded person then they will know exactly where to find your starter motor , even if you finde it they are sumtimes very hard places to reach , and i would recommend removal of battery leads first . you will require axel stands and the apropriate tools , your car looks very low and could be hard to squeeze under to remove starter motor .
are you sure your battery is well charged , sometimes a flat battery causes the starter motor to click when close to flat , try turning your head lights on , and have someone try to start motor and see if lichts dim when you do this , this may suggest your battery is too low to start your car .
i am very sorry to here about you news but maybe a mobile mechanic may allow you to pay them off if you explain your situation over the phone first !
i hope this helps , the starter motor is usually bolted at the base of the gearbox and the beginning of the motor it has leads attached just like the battery does and is usually black and round tubular shaped . please take care there are many hot parts under a car especially the exhaust sytem .
good luck .
