Question about 2003 Buick Rendezvous
Figured I would try and be a little more helpful than emmissionwiz... Your first step is finding your starter. You can follow your battery cable and elctrical wires to it. It is on the lower end of the engine and back by transmission. (passenger side most likely) The starter also has a solenoid that is attached to the side of it. Next step is removing the old starter. It should be held on by only two or three bolts (most likely 9/16) Remove the starter and the wires attached to the starter making sure to remember where they are attached. Once removed you will be able to see your starter has teeth that slide into place and crank the flywheel to start your car. Compare the old starter to the new starter to make sure it is the correct one and attach the same way it was removed sliding into place carefully. (NOTE: You may have to use a shim kit which will come with the replacement starter in order to have proper clearance between the starter teeth and flywheel) Hope this helps, I have never replaced one on a Rendezvous so I am not sure how easy the starter is to get to and disconnect. Good luck! Replacing your starter is not a hard task, it is just one that you have to keep at until it is done trying not to get too frustrated if you have any problems. Let me know how it goes...
