Starter issue with 2012 V6

Researching an issue on a friends 2012 V6 Mustang. Car will start normally, but seems to "hang up" or keeps trying to engage the starter making horrible noises.

Problem seems to be intermittent and typically happens at cold start... in the mornings.

I have not had a chance to witness the issue first hand, but based on the reported issue, I assumed it was the solenoid on the starter that's is hanging up..

Any other thoughts or experience with this before we jump to replacing the starter?

BTW: Is this Starter as hard to get to as the one on my '04 cobra 4.6?

If it is doing it when it is first started up cold it could be a low battery causing it, then check the solenoid if the Battery is good.

I will check out the battery voltage as soon as I can. I have a feeling that its the starter solenoid..
