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

Starter removal


The Renault 5 has what looks like a standard electric starter. first disconnect the battery. Then follow the heavy electric cable from the solenoid to the starter motor. There should be 2 bolts holding in place. If yo need to remove the starter slowly loosen one of the bolts, then loosen the second one. Carefully remove both bolts, then pull the starter out. Make sure you do not dangle the starter by the electrical cable.

2005 mazda 3 wont start. hear a clicking noise, gauges flutter, changed the battery and did not work. What could it be


possibly loose connection from battery to starter?,car has fuse for starting?....etc. Usually when a car's battery is very low and you try to start it,it would have those symptoms (gauges flicker/flutter). If the battery and connections are done properly,have you tried push starting (if standard transmission)it?. Possibly starter stuck on bad part of flywheel?;I'd try to rotate the crankshaft with breaker bar&socket (direction in which the engine would crank or run to avoid loosening the crankshaft bolt!!!) it would loosen the stuck starter/flywheel. Does your car have a starter solenoid or is it built in???

I was changing the starter in my 98 Jetta gt and everything was fine. We got it out but when we tried to put the new one in we noticed that something doesn't line up properly. Somehow the bracket that...


Sounds like the engine mount that connects with the starter bolts shifted a little after removing the starter. Loosen up the engine mount bolts a bit, then, when putting the starter bolts back in, use a pry bar to move the engine mount a little in order to line up the starter bolts properly. Then, once all the starter bolts are are properly threaded in, tighten the starter bolts securely, and re-tighten the engine mount bolts loosened off previously. Hope this helps.

Have a 2002 RX300 that needs the Alt. belt replaced. Bolts a real pain to get to. Have them (3) loose. Do any need to come out or just loose? Thank you


You are only supposed to losen then. Here are some good instruction with layout that might be of help:

REMOVAL:

  1. Loosen the pivot bolt and adjusting lock bolt. Torque: Pivot bolt: 38 foot pounds. Adjusting lock bolt: 13 foot pounds.
  2. Loosen the drive belt tension by adjusting bolt and remove the drive belt

INSTALLATION:

  1. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

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.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE STARTER MOTOR


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
On the flywheel the starter is attached. It is secured by a 2 12mm size bolt. You will need to loosen the positive cable first before letting loose of the two bolts that holds the starter.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

HOW TO REMOVE A STARTER FROM A SATURN SC1 97


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
I have pasted specific instructions for your car below from autozone.com


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 2 through 10

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. If equipped, remove the starter shield pin by pulling on it with pliers, then lift and release the shield from the solenoid.
  4. Spray the solenoid electrical connection nuts and studs with penetrating oil, and allow it to seep in for a minute to loosen the connections. While the oil is soaking in, tag the solenoid electrical connectors for identification during assembly.
It is very important that the solenoid electrical connection nuts and studs are sprayed with penetrating oil prior to removal to avoid damage to the solenoid end cap. A cracked cap will allow debris and moisture to enter and corrode the solenoid contacts.
  1. Carefully loosen the bolts and detach the starter electrical connectors. Position the wires to the side and out of the way.
  2. Remove the lower starter mounting bolt.
  3. Using an obstruction wrench, remove the upper starter mounting bolt. If the upper starter mounting bolt cannot be reached from below the vehicle, it may be accessible from above, through the intake manifold support bracket opening.
  4. If equipped, remove the bolt attaching the starter rear support bracket to the vehicle. Rotate the starter until the bracket misses the axle shaft support bracket.
  5. Carefully support the starter, pulling it rearward and toward the left side of the vehicle to remove it.

jturcotte_51.gif Fig. Fig. 10: If the starter is to be replaced, remove the bracket from the old starter


To install:

  1. If equipped on the old starter, install the rear starter support bracket to the new starter. Tighten the bracket nuts to 7 ft. lbs. (9 Nm).
  2. Guide the starter into the bell housing and rotate the assembly until the lower bolt hole in the starter aligns.
  3. Verify that the bracket is properly aligned and loosely install the bracket bolt, then loosely install the starter mounting bolts. It may be necessary to raise or lower the vehicle for access to both the upper and lower bolts, but do not tighten any bolts until all of the mounting bolts have been started.
  4. Tighten both upper and lower starter assembly attachment bolts to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  5. Reconnect the electrical wires and install the nuts. Be careful not to overtighten the nuts and crack the solenoid end cap. Route the wiring cable so it will not contact any rough surfaces. Tighten the starter positive terminal nut to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) and the solenoid terminal nut to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
  6. If equipped, install the starter shield and push pin, being careful that the pin is positioned for possible future removal.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable and verify operation.

1993 NISSAN MAXIMA HOW CHANGE ALETERNATOR


Suggest replacing all the belts also. 1st belt, remove coolant reservoir. Loosen the pulley next to the res. then there is a tension bolt behind it. get under the car, the alternator is right there on the passenger side. possible under a small shield. Loosen all the bolts on the alternator, then there is a tentioner on the alternator. Loosen that, remove belt, then take out the rest of the bolts, along with the plug and the ground wire to the alternator. for the P/S belt, loosen the other pulley 14mm, and then the tention bolt is another 12mm.

Change drive belt //


check this out 02bdcd0.jpg
loosen the the two bolts (show on the figure above) first
loosen also the bolt used for adjusting tension.
remove the old worn-out belt.
place the new belt (you may need to loosen further the tension adjusting bolt)
when belt is properly place, tighten it enough the tension adjusting bolt,
(not too tight, but not too loose) press the belt to ensure its not too loose!
When belt tightness is enough, tighten the the other lower one of the two bolt then the lastly tighten the pivot bolt.
gookluck!!!!
