My starter needed cleaning once. Before, it made a funny noise on
disengagement but since then it is just fine, now over 110,000 miles.
Nevertheless, a cross-reference to another starter is a valuable info, so if you can, please send it.

Fred, My brother played around with his starter ('97RS) a bit and
indicated it was straight forward. He ended up with bad windings or
something and had to replace the starter. Used a Toyota or something
that was a direct fit and much less expensive (apparently better too!).
If you want the contact info for that starter, let me know and I will
post it for you.
