Where is the starter on 2008 Saturn aura? I sit easy to replace


You didn't specify engine size. However, the starter ( whether it is 4 or 6 cyl ) is located at the front of the engine under the manifold. The starter for the 6cyl motor is slightly easier to change ( .6 of an hour ) as opposed to the 4 cyl at ( 1.3 hours )

How do I change the alternator on 2005 sebring


Will most vehicles, the alternator is located near the top with a belt going directly to it. This makes removal easier as you only need open the hood (bonnet) for access. Disconnect the battery's negative terminal first, and then disconnect the alternator's electrical connector. Loosen the belt tensioning bolt (also serves to affix the alternator) and tap it with a hammer to get it free to move to remove the tension from the belt. Unscrew the bolt completely and the alternator will be off. If you don't have the new alternator with you, put the bolt back in the mounting hole and snug it up so you won' misplace it. Buy a new alternator belt and inspect the starter belt while you at it. It is easier to change both at the same time, but the starter requires you get under the car to loose it from belt tension.

Wont start just click.


Even after charging the battery or jumping? Do you know where the starter is located and what it looks like? Round, 3 wires coming out of the top, located under the engine at the rear. Check these wires and make sure they are secure. Located on top of the starter is the selonoid which causes the starter to engage. With the vehicle in park, emergency brake applied, have someone try starting it while you lay underneath. Listen for a clikcking to come from the seloniod. Can put your hand on it and feel the click too. If you get a strong click, but the starter does not engage, you may have a bad starter. Not too hard to change out but take battery cables off 1st! Also change the seloniod if you take the starter off. You do not want to do this twice so easier to make sure both parts are new. GT

Where is the starter located and a easy way to remove it


Good Evening, the location of your starter is under the front side of your engine and the best way to get at it is from both top and the bottom. The bolts are easier to take out from the top and the starter comes out relatively easily from underneath, remember to disconnect the battery before working to avoid shorting out against grounds. Some times it is easier to remove the oil filter for extra room. Be careful with your clipped in wire and not to overtighten the battery wire going to the starter when installing the new one (because you could break the solenoid). Hope this helps, have a good evening.
Thanks,
Joey

Changing the starter in a 1994 Toyota Corrolla


you need to remove one bolt from the top and the other from the bottem. also the wires are removed from the bottem. most likey the starter if factory is still good the starter contacts wear out they are under the cover on the back of the starter.

Locating the starter on 90 Ford Festiva


Hi? Let's give it a bash!
Look where your gearbox meets with the enjin, locate the bolts that holds enjin and g/box together. The starter motor is located there and the connecting bolts are inline with the above mentioned bolts, the starter motor bolts on to the g/box and is located on the top half of the gearbox, should easily be visible ( under the hood, not underneath the vehicle.
Alternatively follow the thick red wire from the battery possitive to the rear of the starter motor also note that there is a thinner red wire from battery possitive to the alternator.
I hope this advice is helpfull!
Regards.
