Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
-disconnect neg batt cable from battery
-disconnect wiring from starter motor solenoid
-remove mounting bolts with socket wrench and proper size socket (metric)
-mount new starter and re-attatch mounting bolts
-re-attatch wiring to starter solenoid
-reconnect neg batt cable to battery
-it is helpful to label the wiring connected to the starter solenoid before you remove them which can be done with tape wrapped around each wire and marked with a pen. this will help ensure wires are connected to the right terminal when you install new starter. also when you have detatched the starter, compare it to your new one to see if wiring configuration is the same. if it is different, it maybe to your advantage to call the auto parts store/salvage yard where you purchased the new/reman. starter and verify with the parts person that the starter they sold you is the right one for your truck. more than once the part i bought was the wrong one because the parts person entered wrong information into their computer. you can eliminate this hassle by telling them as much info about your truck as possible.

Fig. 1: Disconnect the wires attached to the starter solenoid to facilitate removal
Fig. 4: Exploded view of the starter mounting — 2.5L engine
Fig. 6: To remove the starter, unbolt the mounting hardware shown — V6 and V8 engines
NOTE: On 4WD Dakota models with the V6 engine, the starter is removed from above. On these models you will have to disconnect the steering gear and position the shaft out of the way to gain working clearance.
