Ariens Platinum SHO 24 Starter Problems

I have a 2015 Ariens Platinum SHO 24 with a AX306 engine. My starter is spinning but not engaging the flywheel. Hand start works fine.

1. What is the easiest way to access the starter for removal and service? Other posts indicate it isn't so easy but don't show how. One post has links to a diagram but the link is dead
2. From other posts, there seems to be some indications that these starters have problems. Is this true? If so, what is the usual fix? I was thinking some lubrication would do it but am now wondering, do they usually need to be replaced?

Very appreciative for any help I can get

Ariens has a 3 year warranty so your dealer should be able to replace it free of charge. If taking the machine to the dealer is a problem then give him a call and perhaps something can be worked out.

Could be rust on the Armature shaft, from disuse . Starters are fairly easy to remove . Once off, look at end of shaft, try moving bendix gear by hand, should slide on shaft .

Thanks, unfortunately the dealer isn't going to be able to get to this for longer than I want and, yes, most starters are fairly obvious about how they are attached and removed but not this one. I believe its attached behind the flywheel cover but would like to hear from someone who knows, or get a diagram.
