    • Lift the hood and find the battery. Disconnect both battery cables, starting with the negative cable first. You will need an open-ended wrench to loosen the nuts on the cable ends.
    • 2Jack your Chrysler up. Place it on jack stands, placing the stands under the frame. Locate the old starter on the bottom of the engine. Remove the heat shield from around the starter and remove the two wires running to the starter.

    • Remove the three bolts holding the starter to the engine. Turn the starter toward the engine and pull the starter out. The starter must be in the right position to get it past the motor mount. Work the starter down and out, then lay it aside. The starter has a core value you will get back when you return it to where you purchased it.
    • 4Work the new starter back up past the motor mount and put the starter in place. Be sure to line up the starter shim and replace all three bolts. You will need a socket and extension and a ratchet to replace the bolts.
    • 5Replace the two wires to the starter. Double check all bolts to ensure they are tight. Replace the heat shield around the starter. Jack up the vehicle and remove the jack stands from under the frame. Let the car down.
    • 6Clean both battery cable ends. Replace them on the battery and tighten with a wrench.

How To Change A Starter In MK2 VW Manual Transmission

The starter is mounted between the engine and radiator, bolted to the transmission. To start with, you will need to disconnect the battery cable at the positive terminal of the battery, and lay it out of the way. Jack up the front of the car and support with jack stands. You will need another jack and a piece of wood to sit under the oil pan to support the motor, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the 2 large wires from the starter solenoid, usually held on with a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, into the motor mount, usually a 17mm bolt heads, or an allen head bolts. Pull the starter away from the transmission and remove the starter. You should also replace the small bronze round starter bushing that is mounted in the transmission, where the end of the starter goes in. This bushing often wears out and won't keep the armature shaft from moving when starting the car. When you reinstall the new starter, you may have to jack up or lower down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. Tighten the 2 17mm starter bolts, and reinstall the 2 large wires on the large terminal on the starter, reconnect the small wire to the solenoid. Remove the jack and piece of wood from underneath the motor. Reconnect the positive battery cable and lower the car down, job done.

If it's a 5 speed, you will need to disconnect the battery at the positive terminal. Jack the car up and support with jack stands. You will need another jack to sit under the oil pan, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the large wire from the starter, usally a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, usally a 17mm bolt head, or an allen head bolt. Remove the starter, you may have to jack up or down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. If it's an automatic, the starter is mounted between the engine and the firewall. The 5 speed starter is between the engine and radiator.

Starter motor

Take it to a shop or get yourself a repair manual to find out the proper steps to raise or remove the engine to make space for the starter to be removed. You need 4 jack stands and a floor jack and large wooden blocks. You should have a friend to assist you with the floor jack. also, for safety in case the car should fall.

    Remove starter

    You will need to remove the front motor mount by placing a hydraulic jack under the engine (but not on the oil pan), lifting the engine slightly. Remove the front motor mount, and lower the jack (and engine) which will allow you access to the last bolt and allow for ease of removal/installation of the starter.

    Starter motor.

    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.

    Hope this helps,
