What you need to do is remove the bolts from the universal joint at the differential and then pry the shaft forward pushing twoard the transmission.The drive shaft should drop out at that point,I hope I understood your question and this solves your issue.

Location of starter in pathfinder 1998


I just did this last weekend. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the splash gaurd. It has to be removed from underneath the car so jacking up the front end is a good idea as it gives you more room to work. It's located on the passenger side, right next to the catalytic converter. You need to disconnect the plug and bolted on lead going to the starter. Just squeeze the plug and wiggle it out. You will see how it locks onto the starter. The other lead is just a nut. Now take out the two bolts holding the starter on. The top bolt is easy. The bottom bolt has a transmission line running right over top of it and you have to use a wrench making quarter turns to loosen it. It's tight but the starter will slide out between the catalytic converter and the front differential. Spaced is tight but not too bad of a job. Get yourself a Haynes manual and it has pictures to walk you through.

Remove starter from 300touring 2006


Instructions
    • Lift the hood and find the battery. Disconnect both battery cables, starting with the negative cable first. You will need an open-ended wrench to loosen the nuts on the cable ends.
    • 2Jack your Chrysler up. Place it on jack stands, placing the stands under the frame. Locate the old starter on the bottom of the engine. Remove the heat shield from around the starter and remove the two wires running to the starter.

    • Remove the three bolts holding the starter to the engine. Turn the starter toward the engine and pull the starter out. The starter must be in the right position to get it past the motor mount. Work the starter down and out, then lay it aside. The starter has a core value you will get back when you return it to where you purchased it.
    • 4Work the new starter back up past the motor mount and put the starter in place. Be sure to line up the starter shim and replace all three bolts. You will need a socket and extension and a ratchet to replace the bolts.
    • 5Replace the two wires to the starter. Double check all bolts to ensure they are tight. Replace the heat shield around the starter. Jack up the vehicle and remove the jack stands from under the frame. Let the car down.
    • 6Clean both battery cable ends. Replace them on the battery and tighten with a wrench.

When I make a turn going 30-35 mph and the weight of the vehicle is at maximum force, I hear a clunk from underneath the vehicle. What could be producing this sound?


Try changing the gear oil in the rear axle. Be sure to add a Slip Differential Additive paste to it (Autozone sells the paste and the gear oil).
The noise is coming from the differential in the rear axle and you will hear it when the vehicle changes from one direction to the other. Drive a hard zigzag line in a vacated parking lot and you should hear it at each shift in direction.

Change the front axle gear oil also if it had never been down. Usual interval for both is 30,000 miles.

How do I change the starter on a 1990 volvo 740gl. On thursday at 3pm car started no problem. At 6 pm I got nnothing but intsrament lghts. battery and alternator are good. Could it be the starter and do I...


A friend and I replaced mine this past weekend. The starter is located on the drivers side, next to the firewall down some, alittle hard to get to btu not to bad. It will take 2 people one to hold the starter and the other to unbolt the bolts.
You have to jack up the drivers side of the car to get at the bottom bolt.
There are 2 very long bolts that need to be removed.
Before you do that disconnect the battery negative cable and the cables on the starter.

No room to work or even see the bolts to take out


You'll need swivel sockets and racket extensions to angle in and around to get at the bolts. A terrible job for even professionals. Fully expect to see bloody bones where your knuckles used to be.

Good Luck.
