Remove the windshield wiper motor for access to the top bolt. Use a 13mm dogbone with a pipe or similar for leverage.They used locktite on the bolts,so it's a bear to get loose. This job is a real P.I.T.A. Good luck.

Try with the car up on a hydraulic lift / ramp at your local friendly quick fit exhaust place. then use several socket set extensions including a socket flex drive (costs about $10). it's designed to be impossible so you have to take it to the Jag dealer at $140/hr. good luck

Where is the starter on the oldsmobil silhouette


Open the hood covering the engine. Look down between the back of the radiator fans and your engine. The starter is there, right of your oil filter, at about the same horizontal elevation. It is very difficult to access the starter from the top side, and impossible to lift and remove it through the small access opening. You will need to lift your van front end to access the starter and replace it. Just remember to disconnect the battery and use the proper equipment to lift and stabilize the front end while you do the work. Note the wiring sequence on the solonoid before removing and I believe there is a ground wire connected to one of the two bolts that secure the starter to the engine block. Make sure to reattach it.

How to remove a starter from a 2003 expidition


Thank you for using Fixya.
Heres's the procedure on how to remove and install starter for your 03 Expedition. First remove the battery cables from the battery. Remove the electrical connections to the starter and label for replacement. There are 3 bolts - 13mm. The bottom bolt is also the ground terminal, therefore you will need a deep socket for that bolt. The other two are accessable ideally with about a 7" extension to your socket wrench. The top bolt is on the top of the starter and you could fit your hand up there to feel it and place the socket. The 3rd bolt is between the bottom and top bolts. Remove the 3 bolts and the starter falls right out.

All the best!

  1. Note the radio security code, and then disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. If installed, remove the lower engine shield.


NOTE The engine must be supported on 1990-97 Passat models as the starter mounting bolts also support the engine-to-transmission mounting surface.
  1. If necessary, label the small wires before disconnecting them.
  2. On 1990-97 Passat models:

  3. On Audi A4 and 1998-00 Passat models:
    1. Release the number 50 electrical connector from the starter.
    2. Then remove the nut for the large battery cable and remove the cable.
    3. Loosen then remove the clamp that secures the heat shield to the starter.
    4. Remove the fasteners securing the bracket at the front of the starter and remove the bracket.

  4. Remove the starter mounting bolts, while supporting the weight of the starter.
  5. Pull the starter straight out from the transaxle.

To install:

NOTE On vehicles with a manual transaxle, there is a bushing where the starter shaft fits into the bell housing. If the shaft or bushing is worn or if the starter has been jamming, the bushing should be replaced. There is a special bushing removal tool available but a small inside bearing removal tool is usually sufficient.
  1. Install the starter into the transaxle.
  2. Tighten the related starter motor fasteners as follows:
  3. Starter support bracket, M5 nut: 35 inch lbs. (4 Nm)
  4. Starter support bracket, M8: 16 ft. lbs. (22Nm)
  5. Battery cable to solenoid, M8 nut:10 ft. lbs. (13Nm)
  6. hydraulic hose support bracket, M8: 84 inch lbs. (10Nm)
  7. Starter mounting fasteners, M10: 44 ft. lbs. (60 Nm)
  8. Starter mounting fasteners, M12: 48 ft. lbs. (65 Nm)
  9. The balance of the installation is in reverse order of removal.


NOTE Be careful not to over tighten the battery cable connection. The metal is soft and the threads will strip easily.
  1. Lower the vehicle from the jackstands.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable and enter the radio security code.

How do i to change out a starter on a 1978 El Camino?



Starter - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Starter removal on some models may necessitate the removal of the front support which runs from the corner of the frame to the front crossmember. If so, loosen the mounting bolt which attaches the support the frame first, then remove the crossmember bolt and swing the support out of the way.

The starters on some engines require the addition of shims to provide proper clearance between the starter pinion gear and the flywheel. These shims are available in 0.015 in. sizes from Chevrolet dealers. Flat washers can be used if shims are unavailable.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
If access to the wiring is difficult, the starter may be partially lowered before disconnecting it, but be careful not to stretch or damage the wiring.
  1. Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed, as thread sizes differ from connector to connector. Note or tag the wiring positions for installation purposes.
  2. If equipped, remove the front bracket from the starter. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter.
  3. Remove the starter mounting bolts. If a starter shim tab can be seen protruding out from between the mating surfaces of the starter and the block, remove the outer bolt first, then loosen the inner bolt. With the outer bolt removed and the inner loosened, most shims may be grasped and pulled from the top of the starter at this point. Once the bolts are removed, lower the starter front end first, and remove the unit from the car.

If no shim tab could be seen, yet shims or flat washers fall from the starter as it is withdrawn, stop and attempt to determine their locations. If possible, gather the shims for reuse during assembly. Shims without tabs must be positioned on the starter prior to installation, but the bolts may be held through the starter assembly in order to hold the shims in position.


To install:

  1. If flat washers or shims without tabs were found on removal, position them on top of the starter using the mounting bolts to hold them in position.
  2. Position the starter to the engine block and loosely install the mounting bolts. If tabbed shims were withdrawn during removal, position them before the outer mounting bolt is threaded.
  3. Once the starter and shims are properly positioned, tighten the two mounting bolts to 25-35 ft. lbs. (34-47 Nm).
  4. If equipped, install the front bracket and/or heat shield to the starter assembly.
  5. Attach the starter wiring to the solenoid, as noted during removal.
  6. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.

STARTER OVERHAUL
Drive Replacement
  1. Disconnect the field coil straps from the solenoid.
  2. Remove the through-bolts, and separate the commutator end frame, field frame assembly, drive housing, and armature assembly from each other.
On diesel starter, remove the insulator from the end frame. The armature on the diesel starter remains in the drive end frame. On diesel starters, remove the shift lever pivot bolt. ON the diesel 25 MT starter only, remove the center bearing screws and remove the drive gear housing from the armature shaft. The shift lever and plunger assembly will now fall away from the starter clutch.
  1. Slide the two piece thrust collar off the end of the armature shaft.
  2. Slide a suitably sized metal cylinder, such as a standard 1 / 2 in. pipe coupling, or an old pinion, onto the shaft so that the end of the coupling or pinion butts up against the edge of the pinion retainer.
  3. Support the lower end of the armature securely on a soft surface, such as a wooden block, and tap the end of the coupling or pinion, driving the retainer towards the armature end of the snapring.
  4. Remove the snapring from the groove in the armature shaft with a pair of pliers. Then, slide the retainer and starter drive from the shaft.
To assemble:
  1. Lubricate the drive end of the armature shaft with silicone lubricant and then slide the starter drive onto the shaft with the pinion facing outward. Slide the retainer onto the shaft with the cupped surface facing outward.
  2. Again support the armature on a soft surface, with the pinion at the upper end. Center the snapring on the top of the shaft (use a new snapring if the original was damaged during removal). Gently place a block of wood flat on top of the snapring so as not to move it from a centered position. Tap the wooden block with a hammer in order to force the snapring around the shaft. Then, slide the ring down into the snapring groove.
  3. Lay the armature down flat on the surface you're working on. Slide the retainer close up on to the shaft and position it and the thrust collar next to the snapring. Using two pairs of pliers on opposite sides of the shaft, squeeze the thrust collar and the retainer together until the snapring is forced into the retainer.
  4. Lube the drive housing bushing with a silicone lubricant. Then, install the armature and the clutch assembly into the drive housing, engaging the solenoid shift lever yoke with the clutch, and positioning the front of the armature shaft into the bushing.
On non-diesel starters the shift lever may be installed in the drive gear housing first. On the 25 MT diesel starter only, install the center bearing screws and the shift lever pivot bolt, and tighten securely.
  1. Apply a sealing compound approved for this application onto the drive housing; then position the field frame around the armatures shaft and against the drive housing. Work slowly and carefully to prevent damaging the starter brushes.
  2. Lubricate the bushing in the commutator end frame with a silicone lubricant, place the leather brake washer onto the armature shaft, and then slide the commutator end frame over the shaft and into position against the field frame. Line up the bolt holes, then install and tighten the through-bolts.
  3. Reconnect the field coil straps to the MOTOR terminal of the solenoid.
If replacement of the starter drive fails to cure improper engagement of starter pinion to flywheel, there are probably defective parts in the solenoid and/or shift lever. The best procedure would probably be to take the assembly to a shop where a pinion clearance check can be made by energizing the solenoid on a test bench. If the pinion clearance is incorrect, disassemble the solenoid and shift lever, inspect, and replace worn parts.

Hope this help.
