A whining or high pitched whirring noise when you first start your Volvo may indicate a faulty starter assembly. When you attemp to crank your Volvo and the starter just clicks you likely have an issue with the starter solenoid sticking which means the starter drive needs to be replaced. We have seen issues with both the solenoid and the bendix (not sold seperately)
