X2 on smacking it with a hammer. I found that the Bosch solenoids are a bit "tight" the way they fir the plunger, sometimes they stick. Also like Que said on the brushes. Usually having to smack it every time means the starter is going and needs a rebuild or replace. You might be able to fix it with a real good cleaning tho, I just took mine all apart and used solvent with rags.

I can try, but I would have figured it loosened up when I had it working on the floor. I can take a hammer to it and make SURE I'm going to need a new one though! Lol

That is just it. It doesn't fix it. The brushes will still end up getting hung up again. You might have jarred them taking it off. You just need to tap it. You have my number. Call when you get back. You need ri be there for the family right now. We will get you going.
