You need a socket extension longer than the starter. A starter wrench may help. That wrench is sort of U shaped.

Another help is where you turn the wheels of your car. You may find more room to work and drop the starter with the steering wheel in different positions.

Replacing waterpump on 2000 honda accord se 4cyl

The bolt is torqued at 150 ft/lbs, normal thread.

Either you have a high torque impact wrench or you need a special tool to hold the pulley.

Make sure you get the timing belts markings correct before removing them. The balancer shaft belt can cause a lot of problem if not correctly installed.

Thank for using Fixya.

How to Remove an Starter Acura Tl car?

1)First of all turn off the car and disconnect the battery. Then lift the car with a jack .
2)Then place jack stands under the frame of the car. The rear wheels in the car should be blocked so the car do not roll or move backwards.
3)Then locate the starter in the car. The starter is located on the driver's side just below the intake manifold and near the firewall.
4) To remove the starter out you will first have to remove the transmission dip stick, as it will block the starter from coming out.
5)To remove the starter out you will have to loosen the bolts holding it. You will see 2 in top and other in bottom.
Loosen top bolt on the starter with a 14-mm wrench and loosen bottom bolt with a 17-mm wrench.
6)Then carefully remove the starter from transmission bell housing.
7) Then carefully remove the wire that goes to the ignition switch. The wire will easily slide off. You will have to use a 9-mm wrench to remove the nut that holds on the starter solenoid wire.
8) The old starter is out now.Put the new starter in the car by installing it the same way the old starter was removed.
this will help.Good luck.

Replace the starter, where is it located, what tools do i need

Underneath vehicle, right side (depending on engine). You'll need a suitable jack with jack stands, 8mm wrench to disconnect negative battery cable, 13mm wrench and/or socket with ratchet to remove main wires to starter, 7mm wrench to remove remote wire on starter, and a 15mm socket with ratchet and 6inch extension to remove starter-to-engine bolts (2). Good luck.

I need to replace a 2001 hyundai tiburon starter

Hi, Disconnect car battery.
Remove cover from air intake. Remove Filter.
Remove Filter intake housing (3 inner bolts) and large hose at the furthest screw collar. (This is important as you will need to reach the bolts to the starter by reaching from the top down via that location)
Remove the starter/ acceleration cable (1 bolt at the end of the cable, 2 bolts at the guide point screwed intot the engine block)
Remove the 2 bolts about half way with a socket wrench, remove the bolt sthe remining way with hand or open end wrench. (This is necessary especially on the lower bolt as there is liited work space.)
Take hold of the the starter using a partially blind reach and patially pull it out slightly turning it around so you can see the connectors.
Remove connectors........ Remove clip, the the bolt that holds the positive cable.
You can now fully remove the starter.
Take it 2 the local auto parts to have it tested. Have them test it 4 to 5 "bumps" as when mine was initially tested it worked fine but after 2 to 3 more attempts it froze and would operate.
To reinstall reverse procedure
Take care
