That's where mine came from and was a genuine Bosch rebuild. Never an issue.

Why I posted the picture that shows at least some of the names used in the USA to describe parts on a Starter so it was not just my opinion.

Post OM617 Starter

Unless it's this one : BOSCH SR67X Remanufactured Info
Actual OE Part

You bought a mystery part, many times they're O.K. but I've been a German car Mechanic fir over 50 years now and I want "one and done" so I only buy BOSCH branded rebuilts .

You'll prolly be fine, I just hate comebacks or problems .

Let us know how it goes please .

When it comes in a genuine Bosch box, it's drop-shipped to you from Bosch's warehouse, it has a genuine Bosch anti-tamper seal on the box, and the part inside has a genuine Bosch reman sticker on it, it's a Bosch part. Get off your damn high horse.

You spent more time arguing about who called what part by its correct name then added 3+ posts arguing about what is a proper Bosch rebuild. Pretty sure something directly from Bosch counts, but what do I know...

So not being able to get the solenoid retaining screws to turn would be a major reason someone could not change the Solenoid on the vehicle.

I am not sure where people come up with the names for stuff that the do but the cutch mentioned on the Starter is commonly called an over running clutch.

That pinion/overrunning clutch on mine had a what looked like a Bosch part number on it.
You are right.... Bosch starters has what is called an overrunning clutch, not a Bendix. A Bendix is coaxial to the starter motor shaft, where an overrunning clutch is not.

To not strip the 3 solenoid Phillips head screws, use a propane torch to heat the body of the solenoid to soften the copious Loctite before using an impact driver, otherwise they will strip. This was a tip from a local starter rebuild shop. You have know the length of the screws beforehand in order to place the heat at the right spot.

I replace the screws with stainless steel allen head ones.

Thanks for all the assistance. I had the re-manufactured starter installed and all is well now.
