It will be close to the bottom of the engine block where the transmission meets the engine. Disconnect battery before touching the wires and note where wich wire went. Be sure you know the code for your passive theft protection for your radio if it has that feature because it will probably need to be reentered after reconnecting the battery.

It is below the intake manifold, you will need a lot of patience as this is a PITA job to do!
you have to remove both upper and lower intake manifold, fuel rails, knock sensors, temperature sensors and oil pressure sensors and oil dipstick tube to get access to the bolts and wire connections on the starter body, because there is no way to get to the starter from underneath the car, unless you remove the tranny brace and push the motor up from the front to lower the tranny and access the bolts to the starter.

you will need and E12 socket alot of extentions and time, this is not an easy job, if you want go here (http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=412487) for a full write up on changing starters on our motors and have fun!

Show me how to remove starter motor bmw 318s tork bolt will not loosen


remove the dip stick tube and remove the upper screw from above
remove the bottom screw from the bottom.
some times the screw is stuck, you need to spray some lubricant and let it set for a while.
it's a tight spot so you need to turn the starter switch to top and move it downward on it mount.

Where is the starter solenoid located on a 1994 bmw 525i


The starter solenoid is located on the starter. It looks like a miniature version of the starter which is attached to the starter. The starter relay, however, is located in your engine compartment on the passenger's side under the black box which also houses your cars main computer. This black box is located towards the back of the engine compartment (close to the windshield) on the passenger's side. There are 4 philips head screws which hold it in place.
