DIY starter rebuild, Mazda BT-50

Postby nervewrecker » December 14th, 2019, 8:06 pm

So I had an issue with my starter, I'd just get an occasional click a few times and then a successful start. One day it gave out and the folks contacted a piper when I wasn't around. He changed the brushes and serviced it. Brush job done by a popular place in fyzabad.

After fueling last night in santa flora, no tumble. Sounds like the battery dead but I sure it wasn't because its a recurrent issue. A good samaritan was seeing my headache and came to assist. mentioned it could be something called poling and went on to explain what it is as I had never heard of the issue. He helped give me a push start as well.

Removed the starter this morning and opened it. A slug fell out. Called up TedV2 on the forum and 3stagevtec. Ted wasnt sure about it but he was kinda in the middle of something. 3stage called back later to make sure im not stuck on top a tree stump again. :lol:

Didn't have pics of the scrapping as I had no intention of posting this.

Metal seal between the solenoid and starter stator.
Rubber seal between stator and solenoid as well.
Metal disc separates the motor system from the planetary gears.
Had to use a flat head and gently pry side to side to get it out and dismantle the whole thing to service.

All cleaned up.
Washed with WD40 and cleaned of with contact cleaner.
Some sand paper passed on the rotor for whatever rust on it.

Greased up everything, put back in plunger assembly, fork from solenoid assembly and its plunger, planetary gears, rubber seal and metal disc.
I ad forgot to put back in the plastic fork so had to take it apart again.

solenoid plunger put in, spring back into solenoid and solenoid. The two front screws put back on to hold it in place.
Metal seal put ack, rubber seal put nack.
Power connection connected back.
Rotor and stator put on.
Brush assembly showing.
Will change the brushes tomorrow, already soldered them back in from a heavy duty soldering iron I got borrowed from ted when he got home.

we originally thought the slug went here but confirmed with 3stagevtec that it goes at the top of the rotor shaft inside the hollow between the planetary gears.

Will have to tell the pace about the brush job and how poor it was. its only a matter of months and it failed. They were stuck as they were sanded down improperly so the rear of the brushes could not go any further. It is not a complaint as I know the owner and just mentioning it that the guys buck up themselves. Had it been someone else they may have made a huge issue about it.

I read in here :lol:

I had it checked over by someone who had a better idea than me (chattor trace, siparia old road, fyzabad, forgot his name). He put in a little more grease and said two of the brush springs were installed incorrectly. Everything took him like 5 minutes.

So if anyone attempting it, there is a way to put back those mofos.

really didn't wanna install it and then something wrong but installation wasn't hard, took me 15 minutes total (alone). removal took me like an hour if so little. But now I know my way around so next time its childs play.
