    Hello everybody.
    I finally regeistered to forum after few months of lurking.

    I browsed forum and SOR archive yet could not find precise answer to my little problem.
    LX 450 ,'97 with 62 K, lately purchased.
    Yesterday, upon starting, I noticed that starter did not disengaged. Shutting down engine cut off fuel - engine down, starter still going. I momentary disconected battery -no result.
    Disconnected for 5 minutes - no effect. As soon as battery was reconnected - starter was going.
    Finally disconnecting the battery and banging starter several times with heavy wrench stopped problem.
    Rest on the night and today - no problem. Several start-stops - works fine.

    My question is...what do I need to look at?
    Replace plunger? Clean inside, aroung the plunger?
    I do not have infamous " solenoid click and no start".
    I do not feel well with just ignoring it and hoping it will not happen again...

    I appreciate input.

    Andre

    You need new contacts and a plunger right now. I would not drive the vehicle unless you have to. If you do need to drive it, be prepared to disconnect the battery in a big hurry when it locks up again.

    Oh, welcome to the board. :cheers:

    Cruiserdan,
    Thanks for reply.
    How can I tell difference between 1.4 and 2.0KW starters?

    There is a foil tag on the field coil housing, it will have a part number on it. It will be 10 digits and will begin with 28100-. It is most likely a 28100-66060 which is 2.0kw.

    28100-66060 is on mine. Thanks.
    Can plunger be bought alone? Gasket?

    Since you are taking it apart, replace both the plunger and the contacts. They are purchased seperately. i can't remember if a gasket comes with one of those part sets.

    Send C-Dan a PM on what you need and he can fix you up.

    I've got my starter contacts and plunger sitting in my shop just waiting to get a little time.

    i don't blame you as you really shouldn't drive it in this condition. Best to get on the road quickly to avoid withdrawl symptoms. ;)

    Dan's the man for these parts, but I agree that you should waste no time in fixing this, so the local dealer is a viable option.

    The gasket is made of rubber and is reusable (unless you somehow really bung it up, but I can't imagine how you'd do that). It doesn't come with either the plunger or the contacts, each of which are sold separately as Riely said.

    The R&R is actually much easier than the description on the SOR page...imho.
