Starter Rebuilding; Anyone Know Where To Get Kit..


Recommended Posts

I've had good luck rebuilding several Toyota starter solenoids simply by cleaning and shimming the contacts and the copper ring. A couple times I've shimmed the contacts towards the centre, and then filed them flat to make a nice contact patch. Every Toyota starter I've rebuilt has outlasted the car.... :)

Thanks for responding sc_toy.

What type of metal did you use to shim with brass, copper? I figure that this will probably be a relatively simple rebuild. I would just like to accomplish this without wasting a couple hundred bucks. The starter motor still sounds quite healthy and is probably still in excellent condition sans a small piece of metal!
