Removin starter from 1997 chevy 2wd 1500 350 v8 is there special way to tturn it to clear everthing


The procedure is as follows:--Jack up the front of the vehicle and secure it on jack stands. Then disconnect the positive post on the battery. The starter is connected to the battery. Crawl beneath the truck and unbolt the heat shield, if the truck is equipped with one, using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set.If heat shield is not in your vehicle the ignore this option. Unbolt all wiring from the starter using 3/8-inch ratchet and sockets. Pull out one of the two bolts that hold the starter to the block. Support the starter with one hand, and with your other hand slowly pull the second bolt. The starter is surprisingly heavy, although manageable, so don't unbolt it without first supporting the starter properly. Remove the starter from the truck.
Now once the starter is removed.Install the new starter in reverse procedure.Dont forget to connect the start battery terminal properly.Otherwise you will have starting problem.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do I replace the starter in a 2000 mitsubishi montero sport?


It is located on the passenger side of the motor, underneath side. There are two bolts on the back side of the starter, be careful the small heat shield around the starter will come loose, pull it out toward the back, there will be a gap between the axle and the sway bar. When you have unbolted the starter slide it forward to unbolt the positive cable and there is a slide connection to undo. While you are sliding the starter back you will have to rotate it to where the solenoid is facing down and work it out the same gap that the heat shield went through. Just remember how you took it out and you install the same way but backwards. Good luck and don't forget about the shield, FUN FUN.
