Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Diamante
Hi, I am assuming you know where starter is. If you have found bottom bolt #14 metric socket which to reach you "must" use a medium length extention and go into it right above manifold pipe to reach it. I found if you take the guard off the starter 3 small hex head screws, it is much easier to get at all bolts (2). Whats strange is the lower bolt on starter mounts from the front and the "TOP" bolt #14 has to be reached from the rear of starter. You can not see the top bolt from bottom or top, but if you use your hand and reach up aroung the back of starter you can feel it! It took 2 of us one reaching up from bottom with just #14 deep well socket (no extention) on the rachet and feeling where to place it with rachet facing up, and person over top of engine reaching down helping to align socket on bolt, then use a piece of pipe or ? From the top place pipe extension on end of rachet and bolt will easily.
break loose. Good Luck it sounds hard but is fairly easy with right tools. kasheyboy77

I have a 1997 Diamante and just removed the started this weekend 9/16/2012. After struggling for some time to locate the two bolts I finally did. The lower bolt is easy to see and get to. It is located on the side of the starter body and mine took a 15mm socket with a 4 inch extension. The upper bolt is on the opposite side of the starter body. In other words the lower one comes in from the passenger side and the upper comes in from the driver side. The upper one goes through the transmission case and then threads into the starter. It took a 14mm with a short extension to get over the brace you will see.
I hope this helps.
