How To Change A Starter In MK2 VW Manual Transmission


The starter is mounted between the engine and radiator, bolted to the transmission. To start with, you will need to disconnect the battery cable at the positive terminal of the battery, and lay it out of the way. Jack up the front of the car and support with jack stands. You will need another jack and a piece of wood to sit under the oil pan to support the motor, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the 2 large wires from the starter solenoid, usually held on with a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, into the motor mount, usually a 17mm bolt heads, or an allen head bolts. Pull the starter away from the transmission and remove the starter. You should also replace the small bronze round starter bushing that is mounted in the transmission, where the end of the starter goes in. This bushing often wears out and won't keep the armature shaft from moving when starting the car. When you reinstall the new starter, you may have to jack up or lower down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. Tighten the 2 17mm starter bolts, and reinstall the 2 large wires on the large terminal on the starter, reconnect the small wire to the solenoid. Remove the jack and piece of wood from underneath the motor. Reconnect the positive battery cable and lower the car down, job done.

I need to replace the existing starter in my 2003 Ford Taurus wagon. I know that I have to jack the car up in order to remove the old starter. What I don't know, is how many bolts need to be removed...


Because of the Variety of mounting methods there are 2 to 4 bolts that should be visible as you look at the starter itself. Not counting the wiring connections. If this a sideways mounted motor with the Starter mounted on the front of the motor there will be 2 bolts holding it in place. If the motor is mounted regularly with the transmission extending under the vehicle the starter in on the rear of the motor near the firewall and will have up to 4 bolts holding it in place but most likely no more than 3. I would recommend getting a Haynes repair manual on the vehicle for more detailed instruction on removal and installation. This manual or a Chilton's manual are both available at the major Auto Parts stores and are fairly inexpensive.

I'm repairing the oil pan but I can not remove it, how do I remove the transmission


Before you remove the transmission and not knowing the condition of your oilpan, I might be able to save you some trouble.
If you have a few leaks in the metal of the oilpan, JB Weld can be used without replacing a pan. If you have a stripped drain hole, there are oversized plugs and rubber expansion plugs for that problem.

Sometimes you need to turn the crankshaft to clear the rods. And you can clear the frame and the oilpump with the oilpan by loosening the motor mounts and trans mounts and lifting the motor and reblocking the motor mounts.

But if you want to still pull the trans out, you will pull the driveshaft, the trans linkage and dipstick pipe. Then unbolt the starter, torque converter, and finally every bolt on the trans case to motor block. Earlier you loosened the trans mount bolts, now the frame crossbar should be unbolted and everything should drop.

    How to replace the starter for a 95 buick lesabre


    Be sure to disconnect the battery first. There are HOT wires connected to the starter. Disconnect three wires and two mounting bolts. It can be difficult to reach a wrench in there.

    The new starter will come with shims, thin strips of metal. These are for getting the right distance between the starter gear and the flywheel. Hopefully you won't need them. But if the new starter is noisy when mounted, shim it some.

    Need to replace the starter in a 1999 mercury couger V6 manual trans, and not sure on its location. Im thinking its up top under the plenum but not sure.


    nope... it's on the bottom of the motor... or rather mounted there... i'm not familiar with that car... is the motor in sideways or front to back.... either way... the starter drives a gear on the back of the motor located where the transmission is bolted onto the motor. so look at that spot on either side of the motor on the bottom.. best to just lay on the ground and look up at the motor... unless you have car ramps you can drive the car up on. be sure to unhook the battery... usually two bolts hold it on.... drop the starter... unhook the cables and make sure you put them on the new starter the same way... mount the starter back on and tighten the bolts and you are good to go.

    you do know for sure the issue is the starter ?

    Replacing starter for 2000 elantra gls


    Verbatim from Haynes manual:

    1. Disconnect the cable from the negative terminal of the battery.
    2. If your working on a 2000 or earlier model, remove the air intake duct and the air cleaner assembly.
    3. If your working on a 2001 or later model, detach the shift cables(s) from the transaxle.
    4. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the transaxle.
    5. Unscrew the nut and disconnect the battery cable from the starter motor, then disconnect the wiring from the solenoid.
    6. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts, supporting the starter motor as the bolts are removed, and remove the starter motor.
    7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighter the starter mounting bolts to 20-25 foot pounds.
