The starter is an overrunning clutch drive type with a solenoid mounted on the starter motor. Six different type starters are used on these models. Two each are built by Nippondenso, Bosch and Mitsubishi for manual and automatic transaxle applications. Removal and installation procedures are the same for all units. Some early production models may experience starter motor damage due to improper fit of the upper and lower steering column shrouds. Irregularities in the mating surface of the key cylinder area may cause the ignition key to bind, causing the starter to be continuously engaged. The condition can be corrected by loosening the shroud cover screws about 1 1 / 2 turns.
If loosening the screws does not solve the problem, the covers will have to be replaced with new parts, which are available only in black and must be painted to match interior trim.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If equipped, remove the heat shield.
  3. On the 2.2L loosen the air pump tube at the exhaust manifold, then swivel the bracket away from the starter.
  4. Remove the wires from the starter and solenoid.
  5. Support the starter, remove the bolts and lift the unit out from the flywheel housing.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal.

All connections are good as far as i can see...when i try to start it the starter kinda clicks like its not getting enough juice or battery is i put jumper cables on it also and same...

Chances are the brushes inside the starter are worn. The way a starter is wired internally, the solenoid pull in winding is taken out of service if the brushes are worn to prevent internal damage to the starter. Have the starter checked by a qualified person.

I have an old car but it very old it a 1984 and have a problem to take out the starte so can you please explain me how to do it

Disconnect the battery. To find the starter trace the wire from the battery and it will go to the starter. Disconnect the wires from the starter (make a note of which wire goes where) then remove the two bolts and the starter will come off. Make sure you purchase a new solinoid (bendix) with the new starter.
