Disconnect negative battery terminal. Remove air cleaner assembly and battery. Then you can remove the 15mm bolt holding the upper part of the starter to the bell housing. Next raise the vehicle by jack on jack stands or suitable support. Remove lower bolt from starter and then you will be able to lower it enough to access the wiring to the starter. Be sure to retain the shim that goes between starter and housing. Install is reverse of removal.

SOURCE: how to remove a starter from a 1999 chevy silverado 4x4 pickup

1) Disconnect Negative Cable on Battery
2) Starters on right-side Close to Trans. Bell Housing
3) Remove the 2-Starter Bolts and Shim if it's
if it has shims.
4) Remove the wires off Solenoid: Mark Them:
5) Remove the Heat Gaurd Over top of Starter:
6) Take Starter on Out.

To Re-Install Reverse the Procedure that you Removed the Starter. NOTE: the Shims if there was any are only nessary if the Casting of the Starter is not Exactly or Close to The Original.

Be sure that All the Wires you Took off the Starter Solenoid are put Back on the Exact Same Terminal. And Snug them up .Be careful not to Over Tighten,:
Specs on Bolts Are :
Torque Starter Battery Cable Nut to 90 inch lbs
Torque Smaller ingnition wier nuts to 18 Inch Lbs
Torque the 2- Starter Mounting Bolts to 35 FOOT lbs.
Remember if your Old Starter Had Shims the New one MIGHT need Shims.All Starters Casting are just a Little Different. like by thousands of an inch. So if you have problems you might have to remove or add shims,they come in different sizes. Hope this has helped you,Please let me know how this solution Helped. Thank You: From d_hubbs

SOURCE: need to replace starter

I'm pretty sure the last time I did this, I went through the right front wheel well after removing the tire. You may have to remove a clamp or two that hold some some steel hydraulic lines, just bend them a little out of the way and you will have access.

SOURCE: Where is the starter located and what tool are required to remove

you have to look with a flash light depending on the vehicle, go under the vehicle and look left to the right of the bottom of the engine and you should see a elongated part no bigger than 12 inches(smaller) and it will have no more than three wires with a smaller cylinder attacked to it. most of the time there will be 3 bolts or nuts holding it on. tools= socket set; standard for domestic vehicles and metric for import vehicles, open end wrenches and wire cutters(just in case). most of the time on domestic cars you will use a size of 1/2 to 9/16 for you tools. start with disconnecting the battery then remove the starter. when putting the new one on just turn the teeth on the starter to line up with the wheel in the engine, you will see that when you remove the old starter. splice the new power wire if needed for the power, a new wire should come with the new starter if it is needed. hook the battery back up and enjoy!

Hi there, Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual at your local AP store for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step RR section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy

How do u change a starter on a 99 grand am with a 2.4

Remove battery wires from battery by loosening the termanals and set them off to the side. Remove wires from the starter making sure to remember where they go. Remove the bolts holding the starter in place. Lower starter down and out, or maybe even up through the top, which ever way you think is the easiest. you may need to manipulate it, turning it around so that it will come out. Replace the new one the same way you took that one out.

Hi my name is Ronnie i have a 93 mazda mx3 and having a lot of grinding ithought it was my starter but i removed and found teeth missing off the flywheel need to know the easy way to remove trany if any...

The easiest way is to get the car up high enough to remove it from the bottom. If you are mechanically inclined, the rest is just nuts and bolts. You will need a pickle fork tool though. Also i you remove the clutch and don't plan on replacing it (not advised) you will need an alignment tool.

94 toyota carolla starter clicks eventualy starts

You have two options: replace the starter (easiest, but most expensive), or replace the contacts (cheaper, but more work involved).
In any case, you have to remove the starter. Disconnect the battery BEFORE you start. Locate the starter and remove the wires going to it. The starter is held onto the transmission with 2 large bolts. Remove both, and slide the starter out.

If you want to change the contacts, observe the starter, locate a metal plate held on with 3 bolts. Remove the bolts and the plate. You will now see a plunger, and 2 copper colored contacts. Those are what needs to be replaced. Changing the contacts is easy, just do one at a time, and ensure that all insulators are installed properly on reassembly.
