It's kind of hard to explain. It just makes a click sound. And it doesn't happen all the time. It's happening more frequently however. Could you guys please be kind enough to watch the 2 short videos and maybe help me out?

Sounds like a dodgy starter motor. Might be also be a dud battery.

get the alternator and battery tested for a start - check the wiring from the battery to the starter/solenoid

depending on the age and mileage I would say its the starter motor dying - replace it with a good quality item not a cheap Chinese reman junk - if you can afford it go with a oem Toyota item (or a used one)

Thanks for the quick response guys.

I'm sorry I forgot to mention but I just had the battery replaced just a couple of days ago. The mechanic said that that might be the problem. Its a brand new battery. But the problem still persists. Wiring from the starter to the battery could be the issue? If not, then I'll have to change the starter motor? Worst case scenario, how much am I looking to spend?

And btw, although it's a 2010 model, it's only got 17,000 miles on it. Don't know if that info is any help. But here it is.

Thanks again.

low miles may mean its done a lot of short journeys to the shops and back

As for price - not a clue on the part, but £40-70 to fit it depending where you are

edit.

reman unit £100 for a Chinese one, £130 for Lucas (+£60 core surcharge - refunded on return of the old one),

A new starter - £150 for a Denso, £170 for Lucas or £200 for a Bosch

These are ball park prices
