Default 1990 Bonneville Starter Tap

EDIT: It'* a 1990 Bonneville, sorry.

Hey there! Our '90 Bonneville we left sitting for about a month. Sadly the car won't start now. The battery is working just fine. I asked someone at Shucks and they said to tap the starter. While I read that the starter is behind the radiator, does anyone have a picture?

Also, is there any tricks or tips to getting it to work again? If it needs to be replaced I'll get it replaced but making this one work even if it requires some hitting is worth it.

Your help is much appreciated, thanks!

Fixed! <-- Toddster

The starter is just below the front exhaust manifold. You can see it clearly from under the car once you remove the lower splash shield.

What is your starter not doing...turning over? Or just clicking?

Have you checked all the battery connections, positive and negative, both ends?

Once you find your starter check the connections there as well....
