I tried to take video, but the sound is too faint. It appears to be coming from the starter. I tried to start with a jump, but no luck. Voltage on the battery only went down to about 11 and a half when cranking. I pulled the carpet, no access panel that I can see. I'm glad I pulled it though - found the beginnings of some rust I'll have to take care of. Every other portion of the footwell has padding that is glued down. The part isn't too bad ($138), so it's worth a shot. I'll post results when I have them.
