My starter is scratching and staying engaged on cold starts, and a new one is going to cost me around 300.


Are there any aftermarket solutions or should I go with one from the dealer?


Application is an 02 wrx.


Thanks

Honestly for that price I would just have it rebuilt for probably half that price. I haven't had to rebuild my starter on my Subies yet but I have on my other cars in the past and always went to C & C Starters in Raytown Mo. They are awesome.

Starter is easy to replace -- remove TMIC and it's attached w/two bolts to the bellhousing of the transmission. IIRC, one wire harness plug and one ground that is held by a nut. Seriously, 1 hr tops.

1) Park on an unobstructed incline
2) Turn key to 'ON' position
3) Put in 1st gear (reverse when applicable)
4) Apply clutch
5) After starting a slow roll, release clutch
6) Life

Had to do this for 2 weeks back in high school cuz I was too broke for a starter.

I changed my starter in the LSS parking lot when I worked there... It took me 35 minutes.
I did not have an intercooler to move though. Subarus are so easy to work on.
