i have jsut had my car about a year now. and just broke my 7th starter. this one was the worst. most of them just give out and stop engaging or just stay engaged, but this one (still on my car) just grinded real real bad and then nothing.. i thought i striped my flywheel but to closer inspection it broke the whole case of the starter (where the pinnion is) in more than half. its a pitty im getting one of thoes race starters now **** theses peices of ****. im mad. sorry.
