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.
