How do you remove a starter from a 95 gmc jimmy

Disconnect the battery first . look on pasenger side of motor close to transmission . you should see it next to the oil pan. on top is a part that looks like a mini starter thats the bendix with a big battery cable and small wires . lable and remove the wires . Should be two bolts 15mm or 9/16 , remove these but be carefull as when the last one is removed the starter will fall . on some models there may also be a small support brace that will be needed to be removed . Check the new starter with the old in shape and size . Also check the teeth count on the starter . It's always wise to change the bendix and the starter as a unit . reassyemblly is backwards of pulling the starter . Hope this helps you.

Need advice please

Bleed right side valve on caliper and have someone step gently down on brake. close bleeder. repeat till no air comes out. Repeat on drivers side. Keep master cyl full while doing this.
Grinding noise can come from bad starter drive gear, bad flywheel teeth or misaligned starter. You have to check this...I can't see that far!!! Best way to see flywheel teeth is to remove starter and turn engine by hand while looking into starter hole.

Can't find the starter in a dodge spirit 1989

Taken from Haynes repair manual. I used these instructions myself to replace starter motor on my 1989 Dodge Spirit after nearly going berserk at three attempts to remove it without wanting to look it up in book.
1)Detach the negative battery terminal. 2) Working from above the engine, remove upper mounting bolt and nut to starter. (Access is accomplished this way: stand on driver-side fender and look down at brake fluid reservoir. Just below and beyond the brake reservoir you will see a vent hose. Disconnect hose & remove. Now you will see the starter motor from above view. You will be able to see a mounting bolt and a nut connecting starter to engine just above the starter (facing brake reservoir). Remove (1) bolt & (1) nut first, then raise vehicle and suport on jackstands. Then go underneath the vehicle and remove the remaining lower mounting bolt (1) on the starter. Label wires then detach them from starter. Now you can remove the starter. If you find it a tight squeeze, you may want to remove or swing the transaxle on that side for additional access, although that is not mentioned in manual (but I did it). It just gives you more room, but does not seem absolutely necessary. 3) Installation is reverse of removal.
please do rate the solution.
thank you for using fixya.
