200tdi starter vs hammer.

My starter was clicking this am, so I went with the old hammer solution. Worked, and now it starts. I'm going to have one rebuilt today, but was wondering if it will last like this for a few days? I have a short trip and figure I can push start if I really get stuck.
Thoughts?
Thanks

It will work right up until the point it doesn't. Could be a year, could be a day. No way to really tell.

Rest of the truck is rebuilt. The Starter is trying to join the parrt. Get another.

Even if starter craps out, you can roll-start it (keep a tow-strap in there or park on hills facing downward). But as they said...you never know, so best to get it rebuilt. If I recall, Tdi starters are absurdly expensive ($400ish) so you're better off getting that rebuilt.

You can just fix it yourself. All parts are user serviceable.

Done it a few times with a 300tdi, tow start is much preferred...

Not an issue at all. After my truck got soda blaster the starter wouldn't engage. I pushed it down the street, hopped in and popped the truck into gear. It started like champ. I hit the ignition switch, the starter and its solenoid with compressed air and it solved the problem. Tons of baking soda came out from all three places.

Just an update. Drove it last weekend to MTK. Had to get hammer out a few times, and push started once. The starter came Monday, and now it's in.
And of course it started right before I started the job.
