This is a very tricky job changing a starter is not easy as it used to be. Take your car to a professional and have it repaired in the correct Mopar, way. I have a son who fixed my truck and it was very easy as he is a trained professional. Do it yourself fix-ya. 1-diconnect the battery cable + side. 2- use your floor jack raise the car ,put stationary jacks/ jack stands under the frame for extra protection, block the rear wheels from movement.3- find your starter remove positive and negative connection some are two wires or a small box that protects the connections. Make sure you replace the box that is removed.4 remove the starter bolts most have two some 3 or 4. If you have a protection plate that must be removed also.5 replace the starter with a new or rebuilt one the same way you removed it( sometimes it good to take a photo so it can be replaced properly).Easier said than done on this tricky job and please follow all safety rules to the user guidelines no exceptions jack stands saves lives.

When I try to start my 97 sonoma, It sounds normal,except for a short grinding sound but it won't completely start.Is this a starter.

It is difficult to diagnose 'sounds' .. but from what you say it does sound as though it is starter motor related.

Possibly, the starter motor retaining bolts are loose which allows the starter motor to 'move' as it meshes with the teeth on the flywheel. Or, it's the starter motor failing to disengage..

Get somebody to have a look for you. If any damage is caused to the teeth on the flywheel .. well ... it's an expensive repair. The engine has to be removed..

What is the basic process when the car wont start? Battery is good... I know I should check the starter next, but I'm not sure where the starter is or exactly what it looks like...

next.gif getimage.php? it looks like this if your car wont turn over is a possibility, that the starter is bad, try to hit the starter motor before you remove ie and triy to start it see what happens, hit it hard, if it starts you need a new starter.the starter is near the transmission underside.

Removed starter bolts but cant get it to drop didnt know if need to take loose motor mounts to raise engine for clearance

Some times you need to move the steering in one direction or the other to get room to move the starter. Look on the New starter for a Rearward bolt coming from the Trans side. Sometimes you have 3 starter bolts.

You don't need to lift the engine.

How to remove starter motor on peugeot 307 1.6hdi 2004 model

The hard bit is getting to the starter to unscrew the bolts and getting enough room to remove it once loose. YOu will need to take off a number things from the top of the engine.

The starter is located at the front middle of the engine under the diesel filter.

You will be able get to two of the starter bolts from under the bonnet and the other from below.

You will need to loosen or remove the wiring from around the top of the engine to allow you to remove the starter once loose. (remember where all the plastic connectors reattach).

You should only attempt to do this if you are fairly confident with spanners and have a decent set. You will need 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 14mm spanners and sockets. 8mm socket, 8mm Allen bolt (straight allen key), small torque.

It is not difficult to do the job just to get to the starter and get enough room to remove and replace. Takes about 4 careful hours start to finish for a none mechanic with car on jacks.

You should always disconnect the battery while removing any electrical/mechanical part from car for safety reasons.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Starter replacment

If you are a larger person, you will need to get the front end into the air so you can move under it. Make certain to block the wheels! I had to take off a bar that ran under my starter before I could completely remove the starter. When I took the starter off, a plate fell to the ground. I didn't know what it went to, so I didn't put it back in. I wound up having to take the starter loose again to replace the plate, turned out it was a shim and was needed to help the starter last as long as possible. Also, the first rebuilt starter I bought was faulty. All in all I had to take the starter loose three times before I was done. Works fantastic now!
