Replacing the bendix on a VAZ starter or do-it-yourself repair

What is Bendix, and in what cases is it required to be replaced?

Bendix is ​​a clutch used to engage the starting electric motor and flywheel when starting the engine. Externally, the element is an oblique gear and is located on the starter shaft. At the moment it is triggered, it moves forward with the help of a solenoid and connects to the flywheel.

When the power supply stops, the gear returns to its place, disconnecting from the flywheel. The amplitude of movement of the clutch is about 10 cm. The bendix is ​​protected from excessive displacement by locking rings.

Signs of a malfunctioning clutch are clearly visible, so the question of how to check the starter bendix usually does not arise. The “symptoms” of a malfunction include:

  • a grinding noise in the flywheel area when trying to start the engine;
  • the starter rotates idle, without transmitting torque to the flywheel;
  • a characteristic knocking sound at the moment the solenoid relay is activated, after which the shaft does not rotate.

A faulty gear is usually not repaired, but replaced. Repairing the element is possible, but such actions are not justified in terms of financial and time costs. Therefore, if the coupling breaks, it must be replaced. If you still want to repair it, a detailed video will be at the end of the article.

Note: if the part extends, but does not engage with the flywheel, proceed as follows: put the car in 2nd gear and manually shift it a couple of centimeters. The position of the flywheel and helical gear changes, after which starting the engine becomes possible. Before attempting to start, the car is removed from gear.

This method is not a repair method, but it allows you to start the engine and get to your home or auto repair shop.

Bendix replacement

Replacing the Bendix VAZ-2110 and other front-wheel drive models begins with dismantling the starter.

To do this you should:

  1. remove the “-” terminal from the battery;
  2. Using a 13 key, unscrew and remove the power terminal from the electric motor;
  3. unscrew the starter mounting bolts with a 13mm wrench (2 on top and 1 on bottom);
  4. remove the starter.

It is worth noting that the electric motor mounting bolts often become so sour that it becomes difficult to unscrew them. In this case, you should not try to unscrew the bolt by force. This may cause it to break. It is necessary to tap the heads with a hammer, fill them with WD-40 liquid and wait 15-12 minutes.

After this, you can try again. Another way to unscrew a soured bolt is to heat it with a gas burner.

With the electric motor removed, the retaining ring is removed from the shaft. To do this, you need to knock it out of its seat with a special mandrel (if you don’t have one, a high 15 socket will do) and remove it using pliers. After this, the part can be easily removed by hand.

The above procedure answers the question of how to remove the bendix from the starter. In general, at this point the main part of the repair can be considered complete, since replacing the bendix on the starter after the old element has been dismantled is a matter of one minute.

The new spare part is put on the shaft, after which the electric motor is assembled in the reverse order. They put on the retaining rings, install them on the car, secure the starter itself and the power terminal with bolts, and return the removed terminal to the battery.

Note: a new element must be checked for serviceability before installation, since the quality of spare parts for VAZ cars leaves much to be desired. To check the functionality of the new element, you should put it on the shaft and try to turn it in both directions. A working clutch rotates only counterclockwise.

Performance evaluation

After completing the work, you should check how the engine starts. The starting engine should run smoothly, without knocking and grinding noises characteristic of a faulty overrunning clutch. This is a sign of a high-quality replacement of the Bendix on VAZ-2109-2115 cars.

In some cases, changing the bendix is ​​not enough. Prolonged operation of a faulty clutch leads to wear and damage to the flywheel teeth. In this case, the symptoms of failure that existed before replacing the gear may become weaker, but do not disappear completely. In such cases, it is necessary to replace the flywheel.

Basic steps when dismantling the starter:

  1. The negative wire must be disconnected from the battery.
  2. Disconnect the wiring from the traction relay.
  3. Unscrew the nut of the relay positive wire.
  4. Remove it.
  5. Unscrew the two nuts that hold the clutch housing in place.
  6. Remove the VAZ 2110 starter.
  7. Unscrew the lower nut of the traction relay output.
  8. Release the drive end.
  9. Remove the traction relay bolts.

After completing all these steps, you can begin to dismantle and repair all parts. It is necessary to emphasize that the traction relay must have a sealing gasket installed between the starter and the cover. You need to remove it and remove the spring from the traction relay.

  1. Using a ten key, unscrew the two tie rods.

  12. Remove the gearbox from the drive.
  13. Remove the lever from the seal.
  14. We release the seal from its support. We carefully examine the support for defects and deformation or abrasion on the plastic surface.
