Starter won't disengage

2289 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  poke4802

I just bought a 2001 Jetta, 1.8T, and when I start the car it screams for a second after I start it, and it sounds like the starter is not disengaging properly. It runs well, and it doesn't pose any real problem as it disengages after a second or two, but I can't imagine the extra wear is good for the starter.

Any ideas?
