After reading a slew of scenarios that sounded exactly like my situation, I decided that the logical thing to do was give it a go myself. Everyone mentioned how simple it was--pop off the cover, remove wires, reconnect wires to new starter, and boom--up and running. A $22 part (that came VERY quickly) vs a min $100 repair person house call--and who knows if they would have taken me down that path we all know too well..."well, it's a complicated problem and will need blah, blah, blah, and $$$. Even my wife was impressed at how I "diagnosed" AND fixed the problem easy, quickly, and for a $22 part! Very pleased (with myself, too)!
