Question about 1997 Volkswagen Jetta
Just need to know how to change the starter.
I dont know about automatics, but the 5 speeds, (same problem with the prior body style) worse issue to me is this. once the 3 bolts are removed the motor mount , the short and one of the long bolts are holding a mount down. the bolts are removed and the mount raises (the motor lowers) at least and inch. so getting it to line up takes more than strenght. im about to go attempt to pull the mount bolt out and find a longer bolt that i will put several washers on the top and nut at the bottom. that should push it each time i torque the nut. hopefully this helped someone. if the mount area dosen't do the trick, there has to be somewhere that the same trick will work.

Usally there are 3 bolts holding the starter motor in and its situated somewere on the flywheel iether the back of the engine or the front.take of the wires that are screwed to the solinoid of the starter motor then it should come off.

You need a certified oil and a fellow VW enthusiast on a forum suggested that you use Castrol Syntec 5w-40. It's the same oil that I use in my BMW.
Here's a link to a quart of it.
