  • Since the starter involved the electrical system, disconnect the negative battery terminal to avoid any electrical shorts or other issues.The starter is located on the driver's side just below the intake manifold and near the firewall. Remove the transmission dip stick, which partially obstructs the starter.Loosen the top bolt on the starter with a 14-mm wrench and loosen the bottom bolt with a 17-mm wrench a couple of turns but do not remove the bolts.After both of the bolts are loose, remove the top bolt and then the bottom bolt and pull the starter out of the transmission bell housing. You will have to angle the starter a little to remove it.Remove the wire that goes to the ignition switch. The wire should simply slide off. Use the 9-mm wrench to disconnect the nut that holds on the solenoid wire.
  • Place wires on the new or remanufactured starter and place it back in the bell housing
  • Replace the top and bottom bolts.Put transmission dipstick back in the gearbox and reconnect the battery.

    Where can i find a picture of the starter on a 1996 acura 2.5tl. trying to replace it

    you can purchase a starter at an auto supply house like autozone, pepboys, etc... You can also purchase a Chilton's repair manual or some similar repair manual for the vehicle that will walk you through step by step at the supply house. When in doubt contact a professional auto mechanic.

    grantgga2: I don't think this is one you are going to want to try to change out.
    It entails having to remove the left axle and part of the exhaust pipe to gain access to the starter. At that point, you have one bolt which goes in at the bottom from the starter side and bolts to the engine. The other bolt passes through the trans axle housing and bolts into the starter, pulling it up to the engine.
