answered the same,
on the right. on G16, J18/ J20 , H20,h25 h27 engines.
and 1000s answered here, ++++
remove battery neg lug. (or boom eat acid)
remove all wires on starter solenoid.
unbolt the 2 bolts holding it in (at its base)
it falls out.
if you post what engine is there (they come with 3 sizes)
we can show short cuts. ill post the G16 short cut now.

The FSM book will not cover this , it just says, remove starter
because all mech , know how to remove starters. is not covered in the factor service manual. (gee look at it, is it not obvious what it needs? )

here is the G16 tricks of trade.
the G16B MPI engine (not the A) has manifold brace under the intake manifold, that is in the way, but what engine you have.
Ive not a clue. so cant wax smarter.....

1999 Suzuki Vitara Not starting when warm. Running perfectly well once working

Bad fuel pressure regulator maybe. When engine is fully warmed up, pull the vacuum line off the FPR and see if there is any petrol in the line. If so you just found the problem. Try starting a hot engine with the vacuum line detached. If it fires right up you just confirmed the problem with the FPR.

Where is the starter located on a 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara?

one of the hardest starters to remove
only held on by two bolts but not enough room to remove it
without taking a lot of parts off

will be best to buy a 2006-2014 vitara repair manual

see if the exhaust manifold removal makes it possible
or the engine mount bracket

this is the 2008 starter


this is what it looks like on a 2003 vitara engine

worth joining this 2006-2014 vitara forum

99 suzuki vitara v6 turns on all power but wont

the starter uses 10x more elect. power than the head lamps
or 100x more than dash lamps. it means little.
what matters most is jumper cable starts.
does it crank with jumper cables to a running, donor car,(aaa jump)
no bad starter
no, bad starter key line( immobliizer or such) ask how to test.
yes, cranks great, now.
that means the battery was dead,
i charge the battery and it now cranks, due to lights left on or
charge system failure, if battery goes to 13.3 to 15v running good
if on the charge system failed. (causing battery discharge)
if after charging a battery it will not crank car, its a bad battery (jumps ok)

Suzuki vitara wiring diagram

There is a starter fuse that is not located in the fuse box, it is actually a fusible link mounted as part of the battery terminal. As a check you can by-pass this with a short piece of wire and try to start. This fuse blows easily for example if someone tries to start the car when it's in gear. Hope this helps.
