car won't start. Pretty sure it is starter. When you turn key nothing happens but a click. Checked battery is fine. How can I tell for sure it is the starter? Is there a simple test I could do?

Check all your connections for looseness and being sound.

Barring that, rap on the starter body with a hammer. If it now starts, bad starter. Replace it with a rebuilt.
