need help removing a starter on E65

Tap it with a broom stick. If it starts after that, the starter is on its way out.

Could also be the battery or IVM. with the n73, you have to drop the exhaust manifold to reach the starter.

Thanks for the info.. Is there another file like this where it show the hole process from the start.!!! I try taping on the starter but i could only hit the silinoid. I could not tap big fat part of the starter or is the same.!! When tap it did not start only click. I just got the car like that from an auction. It was park for sometime , dont know how long but iam guessing about 2 or 3 month maybe more. It also has the engine malfuction light on. They sold me the car as a run and drive but when i got home it did not start. I try jumper cables but no luck. So i put a new battery and it on click like before. Is there any way i can test the ivm and n73?? Were are they located and whats there fuction?? Thanks
