Question about 1994 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

I cannot remove the small plastic guard that covers the bolts on the starter of my 1994 bonneville. Is it necessary to remove the small shock absorber that mounts to the motor? I cannot see how the small guard is attached. I removed the larger one, exposing part of the flywheel, but the small guard has me stumped. The small guard covers the bolts, especially the rear one, that mounts the starter to the block.

How do I change the starter on a 1994 Olds 88?


Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace .

Your starter location is shown below with arrows pointing to the 2 mounting bolts. Note the position of the wires on the solenoid and remove the wires first, then the starter bolts. If there are any shims as shown in second photo, please put them back with the new starter. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Before installing the starter motor, make sure the electrical terminals are secure by tightening the nuts next to the cap on the solenoid battery terminal and on the "S" terminal. If these terminals are not tight in the solenoid cap, the cap may be damaged during installation of the electrical connections and cause premature starter failure.

To install:
Note the location of any shims so they may be replaced in the same positions upon installation.
  1. Place the starter in position, then install the starter-to-engine bolts and tighten to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  2. Attach the electrical connectors to the starter, as tagged during removal. Tighten as follows:
    1. Tighten the nut on the solenoid battery terminal to 12 ft. lbs. (16 Nm).
    2. On the SD-250 and SD-255 models, tighten the nut on the "S" terminal to 22 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the flywheel inspection cover and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the flywheel cover bolts to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
  4. If removed, install the splash shield.
  5. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

Where are the starter bolts located? 1994 Olds Ciera S w/v6


Should be between the radiator and engine, underneath the car. There might be a plastic cover held on with 10mm bolts. The starter bolts go up thru the starter, into the block.

Where is the starter located on a 1999 pontiac bonneville


Open the hood, look down behind the fans on the front of the engine at the bottom right side. You will need to disconnect the negative battery cable; jack up and safely support the car, get underneath, remove the wide plastic splash pan (10 mm bolts) that goes between the bumper and the front crossmember. Once that is out, you can easily see - and remove - the connections on the starter. One big one, (15mm?)a positive cable from the battery, and one little one, (5/16 or 9/32) from the trans. Remove the 2 plastic flywheel covers. (10 mm bolts - Gotta kinda twist the one to get it out.) Then remove the two 15mm (head) bolts that hold in the starter. Make note of any shims that fall out when you remove the starter.

Location of the starter


PROCEDURE TO LOCATE AND REPLACE THE STARTER
Under the car, you will see a plastice cover between the main frame beam and the underside of the radiator. This will come off ( 2 Wing Nuts) for easy access to the starter. You can now remove the two wires that go to the starter solanoid. Now you must remove the splash guard on the starter.This is a cover plate that consist's of two screws. Now you can see two main bolts that hold the starter on. Remove these bolts and the starter can be removed from the underside of car.
