Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
First double check and be sure it's the correct solenoid because it should fall right into place.
Please understand that I don't know your skill level or toolsyou have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience isappreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace arepair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have todeliver bad news:)

I thought you were installing a new one. That would be no problem. Due to what you just told me, I would replace the starter and solenoid. It should all come as one unit. This way you won't be taking a chance that the starter was holding up the solenoid instead of the other way around.
Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars nowand keep this link in case you need me again later on.I don’t get credit for assisting you until you rate me
I know, that's why I said to replace the whole unit. When you separate them, this is what happens. The only place that can reassemble that would be a rebuilder if you can find one, they have the special tools for this.
I guess we'll see.
Thanks again and please remember to rate me now and keep this link. Thanks
No problem, but just for the record, there are times that there are more than one way to repair something. I personally would have replaced the complete unit. You are right though, it is tougher when you can't put your own eyes and hands on something. Be well,
