My 94 Camry starter slips and grinds. How do I fix that?

Do I need to change the flywheel or possibly use shims?


If the starter slips, the Bendix drive teeth aren't meshing properly, and if it slips, they're really out of line. I'd suspect that something in the starter is broken or has come loose: either the drive or the mount. If this continues, it could chew the teeth off your flex-plate.
