You have to look with a flash light depending on the vehicle, go under the vehicle and look left to the right of the bottom of the engine and you should see a elongated part no bigger than 12 inches(smaller) and it will have no more than three wires with a smaller cylinder attacked to it. most of the time there will be 3 bolts or nuts holding it on. tools= socket set; standard for domestic vehicles and metric for import vehicles, open end wrenches and wire cutters(just in case). most of the time on domestic cars you will use a size of 1/2 to 9/16 for you tools. start with disconnecting the battery then remove the starter. when putting the new one on just turn the teeth on the starter to line up with the wheel in the engine, you will see that when you remove the old starter. splice the new power wire if needed for the power, a new wire should come with the new starter if it is needed. hook the battery back up and enjoy!

I HAVE A 1998 HONDA CIVIC EX N NEED TO REPLACE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW I CAN THIS THNAK


Disconnect the negative battery cable, unplug the smal wire from the starter, remove the nut that holds the large wire to the starter. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter to the transmission. It's a pretty simple job and only requires basic hand tools.

How hard is it to change the starter? Can it be done with standard tools and one the ground without ramps? Thanks.


Since the motor is located at a lower point in the engine it will require that you JACK up the vehicle so that you can access the starter motor. It is important that you must be able to work in such postion with the tools to remove the two bolts that are bolted on the starter. You will need socket spanners/ box tools to remove the bolts.

My 1999 toyota corolla having 120K plus mileage is probably going to need a new starter soon. Does anybody know how to replace the starter? What tools do I need? Thanks.


Between the engine and transmission is the location of the starter, on the outside of them. Basic tools to remove the bolts holding it and the electrical connectors need to be disconnected. Purchase a repair manual for details as this is a decent job.

I need to pull and reinstall starter on '93 audi cs90


starters seem difficult, but can be accomplish relatively quickly. there friendly because you don't have to worry about belts and gaskets. My assumption here is that you know you need to replace the starter and you know where the starter is located.
first disconnect negative battery cable.
On the starter you will need to disconnect power and ground. then you can pull the bolts and remove the bad starter. Installation is reverse of course. Once installed and secure, always double check the gound connection. reconnect battery and off ya go. Time should 45ish minutes.
