Hey fellow Acccordians !
My 2008 2.4 manual shift Accord sedan's starter will just whine when I turn the key to start it. Luckily, I live on a hill and can push start it in the morning to get to work, but I need to get it fixed. Any suggestions?
PS - Great Site
Thanks!

Sounds like you need a new one-- some have posted they could not find any at after market stores (autozone etc ) Might have to bite the bullet and get one from the dealer. Call around before you start running and then take someone with you so you can kept the car running while you pick it up. Maybe a salvage yard? When taking it out watch where the shims are ( if there are any) and put them back in the same place.

Thanks, luckily I found one at O'reilly's. Do I have to take the intake manifold off to get to it? It's a very tight fit.

Never replaced one on the Accord. Best thing is to download the repair manual from this site and read up on it.

Factory service manual says you do have to remove the intake manifold on the 2.4, but thats about it...
