You need to undo the nut! If you twist the pinion gear so it engages with the flywheelIt will make the job easier.Or you may have to hold the shaft with a pair of vice grips, make sure you protect the shaft if vice grips are used

Remove bendix from honda varadero xl 1000

The bendix is at the top of the starter. Pull the starter, remove the four bolt at the back of it. Pull the cap off the starter. remove the clip on the end and pull the bendix out.. Just a note.. they quit selling bendix and solenoids years ago.. Starter only, all or none.

Need to replace starter bendix on 1994 750 kawasaki xir

It is fairly easy to change your starter bendix. Just start by disconnecting the battery cables. Then you will remove the bolts on the flywheel cover, which also hold the starter in place, and then just change the old part out with the new one.

What causes a whirring sound and no starter engagement countax bendix

Bendix whirring . not engaging. Weak battery can cause that to happen. Bendix spring broken... Bendix gear teeth worn... Bendix spiral on shaft dirty. Remove starter from car and have a look at the Bendix . If the sliding gear on the shaft is worn ,,replace it. Make sure that the return spring is not broken and make sure that it slides easily along the spiral grooves. Check the starter ring also. You can use a torch to see that. It`s not likely that it will be too bad but it is wise to inspect it. It usually wears in three places. Now it is possible that the starter coils are going.. I would put in a reconditioned unit, I have done many times. I hope this helps you, Kindest regards. Jim Doolan..

Starter motor not engaging

Hi without seeing (hearing) it sounds like the clutch in the bendix is faulty, as the solenoid will engage the bendix at the same time as connecting feed to the starter motor.
New starter required or a good strip down and rebuild on the solenoid and bendix.
What condition is the ring gear in by the way (Starter Motor removed). David

Starter just clicks on my 2001 polarise magnum 325

IF you can pull the hand starter it is probally the starter itself. If the hand pull strater is also hung up, then it is the bendix. the bendix is located behind the left panel with the pullstarter. Remove the pull start assyembly remove the bendix clean and lubricate it and reinstall.

Starter turns but wont engage engine?

Sounds like the Bendix... You might ought to pull the starter and look at the teeth on both the bendix of the starter and the flywheel. If the teeth on both are in good shape...then its probably a weak starter not throwing the bendix out to turn the flywheel. But...if the teeth are **** up on the bendix...its cheaper tp replace it. Make sure Battery is in good condition as well. Both battery AND starter can be tested at your local AutoZone... Hope this helps...

Starter is broken. makes a loud csfscscshh sound instead of starting?

Make sure to check the flywheel when you remove the starter there may be flywheel damage and that would cause the same problem.

Remove the inspection pan,undue all the nuts holding the cable,and the ignition starter wire on the solenoid.remove the two bolts that mount the starter.When you go back with the replacement starter,put the shims that came out,back between the starter and the block,if you do not do this,the starter could be damaged,and the flywheel.
