Question about 1989 Dodge Dynasty
I need to change my starter but the bolts wont loosen at all... i have a 3 bolt starter if that helps sprayed wd 40 what else... thanks alot
Hi blondie-68, They can be a little hard to break loose for sure,I am certain you know they are right hand thread, if you can using a flat punch or bar tap the head of the bolt a few times and try to break them again, if you can manipulate a snipe of some sort onto your wrench or ratchet this will give you the extra leverage required,could also try an air ratchet if you have one and if it will fit, just one of those annoying little jobs but with a little persistance you will succeed :) good like let me know how you make out take care

To remove the P/S belt, remove the right fender apron. Then loosen the pivot and adjusting bolts, swing the P/S pump towards the engine and remove the P/S belt.
