Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Changing a starter motor is mostly the same for any vehicle, but since you didn't specify what vehicle, here is a generic response.
To gain access to the bottom of the engine where the starter is located, jack up the vehicle and place strong jack stands under the frame. DO NOT USE JUST THE JACK TO HOLD THE VEHICLE UP!!!!!
Locate the starter motor, which will be bolted to the engine. First, disconnect the two wires connected to it, which come from the battery and ignition. Make sure the ends of the wires do not touch the frame or it will short out. Then remove the bolts holding the starter to the engine and slide the starter out.
Slide the new starter in the smae place and tighten the bolts to the correct torque (varies by vehicle). Then re-attach the wires to the terminals on the new starter and you should be done.
