Question about 2003 Pontiac Vibe
Posted by Anonymous on
Generally starters on GM vehicles have either 2 or 3 bolts that keep the starter on in addition to the wiring that is generally held on with a nut and stud.
Look for a shroud that keeps you from seeing the other bolt(s).
Good luck to you.

Remove the water pump assembly to the timing chain housing bolts (2).
2. Remove the water pump.
3. Remove the water pump O-ring.
The drive belt tensioner must be unloaded and the drive belt removed
before the water pump is removed.

The haynes manual isnt really much help with actually locating the starter. I know because i got the haynes manual to try and find the starter on my girlfriends 2000 focus. It tells you how to change it but not where it is located. I just changed the starter so ill give you the rundown. Underneath your car right where the headers connect to the exhaust there will be a black metal plate with 4 bolts about 4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The starter is behind that barely visible. Once you remove that metal plate you can clearly see the bottom of the starter with the starter solenoid on top. There are 3 bolts on the starter but you will only see the head of one bolt from the bottom. DO NOT remove that bolt first. Go to the top of the engine and remove the air hose from the air filter box. You will see 2 bolts that connect into the right side of the starter brace. It is a very tight space but once you get the bolts off now you can go underneath the car and hold the starter while you remove the last bolt. On my 2000 focus the wires dont give you much room for it to drop. My starter only dropped about an inch so you wont have much room to work with the wires which are located on the top of the starter at the right side of the solenoid. The wires lead into a plastic harness with 2 nuts on the right side of the plastic wire harness. Good Luck.
