Your best bet is to do the whole thing. If the bendix is bad then there should be undue wear to the shaft. Not to mention that the starter is old and had a lot of use. I have been a mechanic for 25 years on European and exotic cars and I dont rebuild starters any more because they dont make them like they used to. They are ment to be a trrow away item noe and have for 15 years in most cases.

Sometimes, when I tray to start the engine no sound is produced... just a fine tzzzzzzz sound from the electric starting motor that ends in a "clack" . May you give me some information about...


The "Bendix" is the starter drive in the actual starter. When you crank the starter the bendix is driven forward into the flywheel. It sounds like the bendix spring is worn or week and it's not meshing with the flywheel. Instead it's grinding against it. If you're ambitious you can pull the starter, dismantle it and replace the bendix or option 2 replace entire starter w/new or rebuilt. Both will have new drive and save you a bunch of time.

Starter turns over but does not engage


One of 2 things. The part on the end of the starter called a bendix is bad (most likely and less expensive) or the ring gear that the bendix engages is bad. (less likely MORE expensive). If you are comfortable with the work try locating a starter locally and replace it yourself.

BMW 318i wont start engine


I would have the battery tested. When they get cold they get weak. Next I would look at the wires on the starter to see if their loose.
