My 86 volkswagon cabriolet died while on a freeway on ramp and would not start again. (Have since changed the spark plugs and wires) but will still not start. Suggestions on what to check next?...

I would check the timing belt. Verify that the fuel pump underneath the passenger rear seat is coming on when you turn on the key. I would also check the fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay that's mounted under the driver's side dash, if the fuel pump isn't running. Also, check the distributor rotor, I had one break and fall apart on my Jetta.

How do I replace the starter in an 86 vw cabriolet?

If it's a 5 speed, you will need to disconnect the battery at the positive terminal. Jack the car up and support with jack stands. You will need another jack to sit under the oil pan, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the large wire from the starter, usally a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, usally a 17mm bolt head, or an allen head bolt. Remove the starter, you may have to jack up or down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. If it's an automatic, the starter is mounted between the engine and the firewall. The 5 speed starter is between the engine and radiator.
