Disconnect the battery and raise the car up and put jack stands under the front. From below the car disconnect the the wires on the solenoid connected to the starter. Remove the two bolts holding the starter on but remember the location of the shim under one of the bolts so you can put it back on there in the same place when you put the new starter on. This will work on the 2.5L and the 3.0L engines. If you have the 2.3 or 2.4 quad motor you need to remove the intake air duct,cooling fan, and the oil filter. You have to take the starter bolts out and pull the starter out enough to remove the wires. You have to remove the starter out from in between the manifold and the radiator.

I have a 1998 Pontiac grand am replaced starter


if your getting a clicking noise at the starter double check for good connections at the starter and grounds as well as the ground wire from the battery to engine. if this is good check the battery condition and load tested. if the battery checks good then you may have just gotten a bad starter.

1998 Grand Caravan metallic buzzing noise when running


You need to remove the starter and check the pinion gear. Sounds as if there is a shim missing, which will cause the pinion gear to hit the ring gear, causing noise, and considerable damage to both. Make sure the gears are all good. Another possibility is if you bought a rebuilt starter from autozone or somebody like that , the pinion stop wasn't installed, or the wrong one was installed, which will cause the starter gear to go to far out and get stuck, hitting the ring gear.
