starter rebuild

I did a search and got this: "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."

My starter is make a grinding noise, pretty sure it is the starter gear/Bendix not moving as it should. Has anybody successfully fixed this issue. Could it be an electrical issue or just the starter gear hanging up and not moving back into the starter as it should

My Jeep is a 2001 TJ 4.0 5 spd.

How long has it been "grinding"? If it was a long time you could have damaged the ring gear. The "grinding" happens when the bendix doesn't pull in all the way. But if the teeth on the ring gear are damaged even a new starter won't fix that. The ring gear will need to be replaced.

The issue was exactly as you stated. I was hoping to just clean out the Bendix but I just replaced it. A few of the teeth were nicked but it makes no noise when I start it with the new starter. As soon as I heard it grinding I changed it the next day.
