Replacement Starter Brushes
The starter motor provides torque to spin the engine internals, creating suction to draw in air for combustion. Startup is when a vehicle actually experiences the most wear, especially in the starter and the engine itself. The starter brushes are a type of commutator that are typically made from copper and carbon bars attached to an armature winding. These are what’s responsible for the flow of electrical current. While expertly engineered from the factory to perform on demand, automobile starter parts (including starter brushes) can eventually succumb to the effects of time and wear. At that point, you have two options: either purchase a brand new replacement starter, or you can save money by repairing the stock unit yourself. No matter which way you choose, Discount Starter & Alternator has quality replacement, brand new OEM-spec aftermarket starters, automotive starter parts, and repair kits. We specialize in aftermarket replacement starter brushes for cars, trucks, and SUVs--especially, Nissan starter brushes.
