Default Starter grinding after start - replace?

My starter grinds for 2 seconds after startup. Is there any way to fix this without buying a new starter? The battery connectors are clean and the battery shows 12 volts and 14 volts when running so it's good.

It sounds like it's sticking internally and not releasing the drive gear from the flywheel. It would have to be removed from the car and taken apart to see if it can be repaired, for the amount of labor and time involved to mess with it you're probably better off getting a new or rebuilt starter. Chances are if you are able to fix it for now the problem will come back eventually and you'll end up replacing it anyway.
