    92 sl 650 starter problems

    I have a 92 sl 650 and having problems with the starter. The starter motor itself turns over fine but it doesn't want to engage all of the time and turn over the motor, seems like alot of grinding noise coming from it. Does this mean that there are issues with the bendix? Any help would be appreciated.

    Your description does sound like the Bendix is sticking, or failing.

    The only way to get at the Bendix is to remove the flywheel cover. You may be able to get some lubricant into the Bendix without pulling the flywheel.

    You won't really know what it will need until you get in there.

    It does sound like the bendix is atrting to stick.

    Time to get your eyes on it to inspect.
