5ktq Starter

Since I bought my car (10k miles ago now) the starter solenoid has not always
pulled in thus the started motor never engages the flywheel. I have "lived
with this" for now as the car would start right away on the second or third
trys...knowing that soon a starter motor replacement would be required.

Is it worth the time to R&R this thing to see if any cleaning and lubricating
the shaft the gear rides on or some such thing helps? Any BTDT's?

Or, am I better off just buying one (I assume a rebuilt) and be done with?
