I posted about this about this in the other areas of the forums but not getting much luck. I was curious if any of you guys have had any experience with taking the starter out and possibly cleaning it out. I'm having issues with the truck randomly starting. When it doesn't it just clicks. I'm thinking there's mud in there and it might causing issues and just needs a good cleaning.
When I took it in for routine maintenance the dealership wanted about 1300 to order and swap it out. I'm not doing that if it's necessary. I've watched vids about how to get to it but not much luck on actually taking it out. I've got the service manual going back to the earliest year in the generation. But it's a bit daunting for a first time on this, at least for me.
Any help is appreciated.
