Either the starter isn't engaging the flywheel or the flywheel is chewed up/missing part or all the teeth/gears.

My stater is free,spinning thn grindingmon the stop but it doesnt do it all the ti,me but is slowly getting worste its a 2001 z3 roadster 3.0im i replaced the crank positioning sensor but did nothing...


replace the starter and the flywheel-the bad starter has not engaged the teeth on the flywheel fully and has ground some teeth off so you'll fit that space every once in a while-cheers Denny

Engine does not turn over when you turn key sounds like metal on metal grind....sounds like flywheel is jammed


The starter is bad, the drive that extends out to engage the flywheel has failed. If this has been going on for a long time, there's a chance the teeth on the flywheel are damaged, this should be checked when the starter is replaced.
