Tip & How-To about Acura TL
of all turn off the car and
disconnect the battery. Then lift the car with a jack .
2)Then place jack stands under the frame of the car. The rear wheels in the car should be blocked so the car do not roll or move backwards.
3)Then locate the starter in the car. The starter is located on the driver's side just below the intake manifold and near the firewall.
4) To remove the starter out you will first have to remove the transmission dip stick, as it will block the starter from coming out.
5)To remove the starter out you will have to loosen the bolts holding it. You will see 2 bolts.one in top and other in bottom.
Loosen top bolt on the starter with a 14-mm wrench and loosen bottom bolt with a 17-mm wrench.
6)Then carefully remove the starter from transmission bell housing.
7) Then carefully remove the wire that goes to the ignition switch. The wire will easily slide off. You will have to use a 9-mm wrench to remove the nut that holds on the starter solenoid wire.
8) The old starter is out now.Put the new starter in the car by installing it the same way the old starter was removed.
this will help.Good luck.
