    Dumb question... But that means I replace it yeah? Can't 'fix' it?

    What's this bearings job? As in what is it stopping from reversing?

    Cheers

    Try removing it, flush with metho, and dry out completely...once dry re-install, and try to start engine...sometimes they can get gummed up and the rollers dont quite grab

    If the above fails, instal a new bearing, they do wear out over time

    The one way bearing's job is to help turn the engine over during starting, and then to idle on the starter shaft while the engine is running
