Starter noise on 2018 410.

My 2017 does not make that noise, almost sounds like the starter solenoid is free spinning.   Just a guess from a DIY hack mechanic:).... if it were me I would at least let your dealer know about it.  They might just want to install a new starter.

Does it start?  I believe these starters install into the housing and we had one on the lake where the gear broke and fell into the housing.  I'm not sure how you get that out .. but I would say have the starter replaced and minimize (stop) using it until you do.  Would hate to have to pull a motor for something so simple.

Starts every time. Just always sounds like this.

Sound file isn’t working for me. I’m curious though as mine makes an interesting noise as well.

Same here.   Sound file doesn't work for me.   Mine makes a slight squeal at startup, almost like the impeller needs to quickly prime.    It has done it since day 1.  It could be considered a sneeze:dontknow:

Sounds like it may be normal for some. Can’t seem to get video to post here anymore.

Mine isn't quite as long, but there is definitely a similar sound as it turns over for me.  

 

I'll try to remember to get a video next time out.

Maybe it’s an iPhone issue? That link didn’t work either.

Sent vid to my dealer and they ordered a new starter. Said definitely didn't sound right.

Recent Indmar starters and alternators are a known problem.

Can you perhaps put the video on YouTube and paste a link?  I would like to view it.

Got starter swapped out. Definitely sounds better. Think bendix was a bit slow retracting. Wear looked minimal so not worried about the flywheel wear either.
