Question about Cars & Trucks
Not sure if any different from most cars as I haven not done it on an Equinox but 1st thing you want to do is remove the power terminal on the battery.
Most likely you will need a 14m wrench to remove the bolts that hold tge starter in place. If you can loosen the last bolt but dont remove it all the way so the starter can be lowered enough to look on the top side of it and remove the power cable and others terminals if it has any others. If multiple wires then make sure you reconect them the same way and dont cross them. You may be using a 7mm or 8mm wrench on the little nut and possibly a 12mm on the main power cable. Once all disconected remove the last bolt holding the stater and becareful not to drop it on yourself ad they are a bit heavy. Once out on the car check the new starter to make sure the replacement one you have is the same. Look at the bolt holes, diameter and length. Usually the new starter has new nuts for the terminals, use them and not the old ones. Crawl under car and reverse the same sequence. You may grunt here and there as this little units are heavy, dont over tighten the amounting bolts but mke sure they are tight. Once all done under car, reconnect battery terminal and crank your car, you may notice how smooth and quick the car starts up.... take the old starter back the parts store in the same box the new one came in and get your core fee back.
Hope this helps you.
