    I'm sure it's the bendix but I'd rather change out the whole starter if possible while I have the money it's an 03 so might as well

    Before you spend all that money, clean the contacts in the solenoid.

    Like Shannon said, clean her up.. hopefully ur shaft didn't snap and that's not ur issue.. the clanking noise leads me to beleive something isn't engaging. But yeah I'd pull it off and clean it up first.. just had a buddy here last week go through that and he cleaned it up as per Shannon.. and he is back in business

    I double checked the # and it is the correct one, maybe send them a text also, but usually they get back to you pretty quick
