Afternoon guys!

I wonder if anyone can advise.... 80% of the time I start the focus (mk1 1998 s plate 1.8 ghia), there is a sort of grinding / whirling / clinking noise after the key has been released and the car started.

Would anyone think this is the starter motor?

Thanks in advance guys![center][/center]
