Do u have a 1/4 drive socket and extension to fit top bolt??, if so that is how you get at the bolt with the much smaller 1/4 drive socket and extension, a wobble extension helps as well, you can buy these from Snap-On tools or Mack, don't use a cheap socket it will break, you need a super strong pro grade tool.

Can you show me how to replace the starter motor of my magna 4 cylinder year model 1988

dont know what the heck the other answers were trying to do fix
T he question was how to remove the starter motor on a 4 cyl magna 1988 mitsubishi .. that makes it a TN or first gen magna

ok TN can be either carby or an EFI setup
disconnect battery
14mm bolts two hold the starter on
undo the battery positive cable on the starter

and the ignition wire on the starter

On an EFI you have to go under the engine and undo the support bracket of the efi inlet manifold to get the starter out
underneath the car
the interim shaft is one of the bolts holding the bracket to the block
on a carby you can do it from the top
from the drivers side

How to remove starter motor from 1997 audi a6 v6 auto, i have got the bottom bolt out but cant see or find the other one that holds it in place. is this going to be a garage job?

The other bolt ( the top one ) is only accessable from the right front wheel well. I believe it is a 16mm. it is located in a small recess in the block that requires a flex joint with a socket, or if you dont have one a ring spanner. It is difficult to remove as the bolt is very long. This is not an easy job and the car needs to be in the service position,ie. the front bumper off and the carrier moved forward. the only way the starter can clear the frame for removal is by also removing the alternator. Go to this link for an excellent description of how to put your car in the service mode

1987 Audi 5000s won't turn over

Do you have headlights if you turn them on. Sometimes if a battery is clear dead and you jump it and it will depend on the gauge of wire in the jumpers whether it will start right off or not. Another scenario is the battery you bought is not good or fully charged. If you have a battery with less than 11 volts it probably won't energize the starter.
