    repairing the Starter on a gtx 4tec pleas help.

    Hello i have a 2002 sea-doo gtx 4tec. and i am having problems with my starter.
    The last time i went to ride on it, it didnt start as easy as allways and gave me a hard time.
    my problem is that some times it starts immediately when i push the start button and some times it wont start or i have to wait for 10 minutes until it starts the engine again. i have a brand new battery that is very strong and is full so i know that the problem is with the starter and not with the battery.
    My firs question is can i repair the Starter on my gtx 4tec or i will have to buy a new one??
    My second question is where is the location of the starter on the 2002 gtx 4tec ( pictures or description of where is the starter connected or could be found on my ski)
    I want to disassemble the starter and repair it on my, how can i disassemble it and could i fix it ???
    pleas help me and give some advice...
    thenk you avi.

    You will have to buy a new one.

    The starter is located beneath the exhaust manifold.

    does everyone replace their starter with an oem starter or would it be safe to go with one like the link below? OEM starter is listed for almost $400.00!

    what do u mean it wont start sometimes... what does it so exactly?

    how do u know it's the starter and not the relay or not a bad ground or not something else.

    starters failing on 4-tecs is not a very common thing

    sorry shibb this was an old post, I just added onto it b/c Jerry had a post about new starters. My question was about the starters off of ebay.

    Can you remove the starter with the engine in the ski or do you have to pull the engine to get access to the starter?
    Just looking at it, it seems you would at least have to pull the exhaust manifold to get to the starter with the engine in the ski, right? Wonder how much of a pain that is?
