Well the 2 bolts that hold the starter are out but there is no room to pull it out!!!!! how can I pull my starter my car is a yukon 2001 5.3 4x4...... please help.........
Park your car in a safe place with a level surface. Turn off the ignition switch, all electrical accessories and open the hood.
Disconnect the black negative battery cable. Remove the mounting bolt from the engine oil dipstick tube, using a wrench or ratchet and socket. Move the tube to the side.
Raise the front of the vehicle, using a floor jack and safely support it on two jack stands. Remove any under-engine cover shields, if your model is equipped with them.
Remove the mounting bolts from the transmission plastic cover and remove the cover. If your model is equipped with a starter-to-transmission cover, remove the bolt. If there are any sensor electrical connections that might interfere with the starter removal, unplug them now. On some models, you might have to disconnect the engine oil level sensor.
Remove the nut from the front axle mounting bracket through-bolt using a wrench or ratchet and socket, if you have a 4WD model; then pull out the through bolt until the tip is flush with the support bushing, but do not remove the bolt.
Remove the two starter mounting bolts using a ratchet and socket. On some models, the starter is mounted with a short and a long bolt; make a note of the bolts' locations.
Pull the starter forward until the motor clears the transmission and remove the starter-to-transmission cover. Disconnect the battery cable and wiring harness from the starter solenoid on top of the starter, and remove the starter from the vehicle.
Set the new starter in place and connect the battery cable and wiring harness to the starter solenoid. Set the starter-to-transmission cover in place and install the starter mounting bolts.
Seat the front axle mounting bracket through-bolt back in position and tighten the nut. Plug any sensor connectors you might have disconnected previously. Install the starter-to-transmission cover bolt and any other protective shields or covers previously removed.
Lower the vehicle. Install the bolt to the engine oil dipstick tube and connect the black negative battery cable.
Hope this makes some sense, harder to explain the show. Good luck friend and be safe.
