First disconnect the positive battery cable. You already have the bolts out. pull the starter back and down and it will drop out. do not let it hand from the wires. Disconnect the wires to the starter. Pay attention as to which wire comes off what terminal. They must be attached correctly or your starter will not crank after installation. Then the last thing you do will be to hook the battery up again.

Instructions on how to change a starter on a 1992 chevy s10 blazer 4.3z engine v6

The positive doesn't even need to be disconnected. That should be the 'negative' terminal that you disconnect first, not the 'positive' one. The negative terminal is safe to accidentally ground your tool, but if you ground your tool disconnecting the positive terminal you can damage your battery, tool, or even injure yourself.

Now to get the starter out; Use jack stands to hold up your S10 front end, remove the right side motor mount bolt (the horizontal one), then use wood blocks and your jack to lift up off the bottom of the transmission. Look at the motor mount from above and you will see that it has been raised two inches or more, give the transmission maximum lift without lifting the vehicle off of the jack stands.

Be careful to not upset you vehicle! Push on either side and the front or rear to make sure that it's secure before crawling underneath.

Have a light source ready. From underneath, lift the end of the starter up and away from the oil pan, the other end should come out the of the bell housing. Now for the tricky part, either end can come out but it comes out like puzzle piece, if you take out the motor end first start out vertical until it stops then move until it's closer to horizontal. It's very tight but it will come out.

Installing I could not just reverse my instructions so I put the driver side in first and it just plopped right in. There was no skill in getting it out or putting it back in, just luck, it's that tight.

Hook up your terminals on the starter with the solenoid orientated to the bottom, rotate to proper orientation then place in the bell housing. Start your two vertical bolts, and now you're on easy street.

My opinion of these design is low. It's a lot of work to change the starter on this unit. Good luck to anyone reading this!

How do i remove and replace the starter on a 93 s10 Chevy blazer

There should be two bolts and a big wire comming from the battery to remove. I always do the wire first then the two bolts. You have to be careful starters are heavy when you are on your back under a truck. All of this is located on the same side as the battery you can fallow the red wire from the battery to the starter if you need help locting it. The starter is not hard to change but there is very little room to move it in and out of position so it takes a little bit of time.
