i gotta 91 ext 4x4 6cyl.. one day i was taking the stereo apart and took part of the dash off..and glove box.. when i put it back together the car wouldnt start.. the starter wouldnt turn over..but i noticed a clicking noise behind the glove box so i took aprt the area it was making the noise and it was behind the glove box and one of the front speakers was rubbing something maybe a relay or something but i removed the speaker and it startted after that i was wondering what is behind that glove box that has to do with the starter and makes a clicking noise...when i tried to start it and it wouldnt turn over.. but did after i re adjusted the glove box better...?

I think the glove box thing is just quoincendence ....

I would think your starter contacts are in need of replacement .

Here is my reply again that I posted to someone else several days ago about the location of the starter and everything you ever wanted to know about their repairs which I spent lots of time and research coming up with the info:

I copied & pasted my reply:

Here is some more info for future reference for everyone which will save you time and lots of $$$:

Starter brushes:

Whether your starter uses two rectangular types or one rectangular and one crescent you can substitute with two squares or one square and one crescent so any of the above part #'s for those kits will be the right ones,or about half of the auto electric shops in your local yellow pages would sell aftermarket contacts for only $5 each or the pair.

If the brake and charge lights come on during revving of the engine then it's a sign that the carbon alternator brushes require replacing as this is the mileage for them to wear out. In alternators the brushes wear out on average every 140-170 000 miles where on the dashboard the brake & charge light both come on at the same time. About half of the auto electric shops in your local yellow pages sell carbon alternator brushes and copper solenoid starter contacts for about $5/pair.Another way to verify that the alternator is not charging is while the engine is running bring a metal screwdriver or any metal object near the alternator and if the alternator is working properly then it should act like a magnet and grab the screwdriver.

For carbon brushes R&R:

No, not a coincidence!
That relay is probably your circuit-opening relay, part of the starter circuit. A relay works by creating a small magnetic field to pull in an arm, thus making the contacts. If the speaker was placed in close proximity to the relay, the large magnetic field of the speaker magnet probably didn't let the contacts close. Or maybe you just bumped the connector to the relay.
