Nissan FB15 starter noise/Bendix gear


Recommended Posts

Hey,

have this FB15 EX 1999, which makes that metal in a blender :) sound occasionally when starting. the starter wont fully engage with the flywheel, and makes that sound. as usual found out via internet that its something to do with the Bendix gear.

My question is, is it a hard thing to replace like a DIY. I do have most of the general tools at my house as well. and if i remove the starter from engine, how can i differentiate whether i need to change the Bendix or it just need cleaning and lubricating.. Thanks ladies and Gents.. TC

Charithtg,

You can do that job yourself. Remove the motor from your car dismantle motor clean examine first the Bendix drive is in order, because you complain about a noise from the motor.

If the  drive wheel which engage to the flywheel is damaged or slipping, then replace same with a new one or used one in good working order.

Fix the Solenoid fork correctly, reassemble the motor. Re fit into your engine and operate the starter motor if the engine starts without any problem (unwanted noise) then the job is done correctly.

If you have any more problems then get a help of a Auto Electrician to do the Job.

Carried out the rectification, and the condition is somewhat better now. the noise comes rarely but not frequently like before. thanks for the advice.
