I think you should try to pinpoint the problem first. Did it only happen that one time? Did it make just one loud click or were there many clicks back to back? Did you check the electrical connections on the starter, or just the battery? Did you get the charging system checked out? Did the lights on the dash dim or go out completly when the click happened?

I haven't had to change any electrical parts on my car yet, so I can't help you there but the starter should be under the car, facing front, and located somewhere around where the engine and transmission meet. You should check out www.e38.org and see if you get any info there. I also keep hearing about a bentley manual that people use to help them with these cars.
