Re: how to remove a starter on a 1996 s10 4.3 4x4
Well most of the time you only have to deal with 2 or 3 very long bolts. look for the starter on the back right (passenger) side of the engine. (for rear wheel drive trucks)it will be a big and heavy(so be carfully) cilinder shape object that is right againts the engine and fly wheel. to remove locate and remove all wires(make note of were they are) and then remove the bolts one buy one. with the last one you may need to hold up the start and undo the last bolts buy hand(after useing a wrench for the first part) it sohuld simply fall off the engine. don't drop it. if it dosen't come out so easly it may be held up buy the flay wheel cover. thin sheat of metal held in place buy 5-7 small screws. easy to uninstall and reinstall

Pop the hood. Remove the air intake tubing from the engine using a flathead screwdriver, and set it to the side. This will expose the starter motor just below, mounted towards the firewall with several wires out of the top of it. ----------FOR how to remove and install starter motor, please click on the link below:--http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/05/how-to-remove-starter-motor-on-1996-bmw.html-----------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Raise and support vehicle. As required, remove nuts from A/C
compressor, exhaust system and/or engine braces, adjacent to starter. On M/T models, remove bending
brace from around starter (if equipped). On all models, remove other items that may interfere with
removal of starter.
2. If necessary, remove nut from engine cross brace. Using pry bar between upper engine mount and engine,
pry rearward and support engine.
3. If necessary, remove oil filter, air induction tube and cooling fan. Remove flywheel inspection cover (if
equipped). Remove starter solenoid terminal "S" nut and battery cable nut. Separate wiring from starter.
Remove starter mounting bolts. Remove shims and note arrangement for reassembly. Remove starter.
Before installing starter onto engine, tighten inner solenoid terminal nuts to ensure they are secure in cap.
Starter failure may occur due to terminal or cap damage. Install starter and wiring. Ensure shims are installed in
this is pretty cut and dry, remove neg battery terminal, raise vehicle if needed, remove the wiring from the back of starter, then remove the two starter mounting bolts and pull starter out, to install reverse directions, good luck.

coat wire ends and starter studs with die-electric grease, battery protector, spray paint , or something non metalic.

Look under the hood on the pass. side and down by the frame you will see the main power wire that runs from the batt. down to the starter.There is a wire clamp that has a 13mm bolt which secures the wire to the frame.Taking this off will allow more slack to pull the starter down further to access the wire.
