Question about 1999 Mazda MPV
Posted by Anonymous on
I'm assuming 2wd. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Jack the passenger side and place on a safety stand. Starter bolts (2 or 3) are threaded from rear of vehicle towards the front and they are visible and accessible. The starter is removed by removing the mounting bolts (removing the bottom bolt last). These are likely 14mm heads with threadlock on them. They are tough to break loose...use a breaker bar. Once bolts are removed, push the starter towards the front of the vehicle while at the same time tipping the front of the starter down. There are two connections on the magnetic switch (solenoid) on top of the starter...with the starter tipped down you can access the nut on one connection by using extensions (about 8 inches) on the ratchet. The second connection is a clip-on wire. You simply squeeze the connector to release. The starter can then be fished through the gap at the cross member and behind the power steering pump. Tight, but very doable. Nothing else has to be removed, regardless of what you may read. Good luck.
