Tip & How-To about 1991 Jeep Wrangler

Wrangler starter removal

Here's the step by step:

Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

Jack it up. You're going underneath so chock the wheels and use jack stands. Be safe.

Remove all wires from the solenoid.
Depending on your flexibility, it may be easier to drop the starter before removing the wires. If you do, don't let it hang by the wires.

On a 4.0, there is an oil cooler line bracket on the exhaust brace.
Remove it.

Remove all but one attaching bolts from the starter. Loosen the last one.

The starter is heavy, support it and pull the last bolt.

Slide the starter out of the mounting hole and lower it down.

While you're down there inspect the flywheel teeth for damage.

You need to have three bar support with the chains to have engine supported by it. Park the vehicle in level surface, Set the parking brake, chock the rear wheels. Jack the vehicle up and set it support on jack stands. Disconnect negative battery terminal, If vehicle is equipped with A/C , do not disconnect refrigerant lines just remove A/C compressor and set it aside.Remove the nut or bolt that goes trough engine mount and remove it from sub-frame.Raise engine one inch with the three bar support fixture and remove old mount insulator and install new one. Make sure you to tighten the bolt to torque. Best bet is to purchase repair manual for step by step instruction if you are not sure in my dirrections.

how to remove the starter


Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to replace/remove the starter.

#1
Loosen the negative battery terminal on the car and pull the terminal away from the battery. Place the wheel chocks behind the rear tires.

#2
Jack the car using the automobile jack and place a jack stand under the frame near the jacking point. Raise the jack stand to the frame.

#3
Remove the three bolts that hold the starter to the engine using a socket and ratchet. Remove the starter away from the engine so you can gain access to the wires.

#4
Remove the main wire from the starter using a wrench to remove the nut and then unplug the wire harness.

#5
Pull the old starter away from the engine and put the new one into place. Reconnect the wires by plugging the wiring harness back in and securing the main wire back to the post, tightening the nut with a wrench.

#6
Push the starter into place on the engine and start all three bolts by hand. Tighten the bolts using a socket and ratchet.

#7
Remove the jack stand from under the car and lower the car back to the ground. Start the car to test the installation.
