You may just have to 'persuade' it by gently tapping w/ a wood or plastic hammer, or using a piece of wood and tap w/ regular hammer above and then below (if u have access to both directions). The starter is installed from front into the bell housing, so try and tap at an angle from the rear of the starter towards the front of the ford, as that is the direction it will be removed. Let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

I can't get mthe starter out of my 1994 Z-26 beretta. It has a 4 cylinder motor. I took one big bolt out and the other big bolt was already out missinge bolts.Why won't the starter budge?

Note the picture. Is this what you have? What about the rear bracket, #1? Maybe it's hung up on the flywheel? Did you try tapping on the starter motor with a big hammer, to see if it would come loose? I'm not saying beat it to *****.

Starter. Hyundai santa fe v6 2wd 2002. Took out bolt and nut but starter seems stuck in place. Tried a hammer to knock it out of place. Doesnt seem to wanna slide out. No budge or movement. Sprayed wd40...

Check for another mounting bolt Some engines have a bolt from the backside into the starter-some Toyotas and Hondas do. And sometimes a mounting bolt is towards the inside of the starter, possibly hidden from sight by the starter solenoid.

How do i install a new starter motor on a 1982 mazda rx7 13b manual?

unhook battery cable. there are only 2 bolts holding the starter in. you will need 14mm wrench and 14mm and/ or 17mm sockets, I think 1 bolt will have a nut on the end as it goes through. after that the start will hang and the wires are easily taken off.

Trying to remove the Starter

Well before you wind up dropping the trans,lol, check the front side of the trans in front of the starter. There's usually a bolt or or nut on a stud. There's only 3 bolts or 2 bolt & that stud holding it in. Check autozone's site for a diagram or buy a Hayne's manual from any parts store.

All bolts and cables have been taken off. I think the starter motor is engaged into the engine because it will not come out. What do you suggest?

Sometimes the gear and nose of the starter can become jammed when attempting removal. Try to hold the starter in bolted on position and gently pry forward on the housing between the starter and the bell housing until it comes loose then lower and remove.

Can't find the starter in a dodge spirit 1989

Taken from Haynes repair manual. I used these instructions myself to replace starter motor on my 1989 Dodge Spirit after nearly going berserk at three attempts to remove it without wanting to look it up in book.
1)Detach the negative battery terminal. 2) Working from above the engine, remove upper mounting bolt and nut to starter. (Access is accomplished this way: stand on driver-side fender and look down at brake fluid reservoir. Just below and beyond the brake reservoir you will see a vent hose. Disconnect hose & remove. Now you will see the starter motor from above view. You will be able to see a mounting bolt and a nut connecting starter to engine just above the starter (facing brake reservoir). Remove (1) bolt & (1) nut first, then raise vehicle and suport on jackstands. Then go underneath the vehicle and remove the remaining lower mounting bolt (1) on the starter. Label wires then detach them from starter. Now you can remove the starter. If you find it a tight squeeze, you may want to remove or swing the transaxle on that side for additional access, although that is not mentioned in manual (but I did it). It just gives you more room, but does not seem absolutely necessary. 3) Installation is reverse of removal.
please do rate the solution.
thank you for using fixya.
