Iassume you are trying to remove the battery. Remove the neg. & pos. cables & then the hold down bolt at the bottom of the battery. This will release the battery. Hope this is what you meant! Good luck!

    The procedure to remove the alternator is as follows:---Locate the alternator on the front of the engine. Remove the drive belt from the alternator pulley by loosening  lock nut on the front of the alternator adjustment pulley . Then, turn  adjustment bolt on the end of the adjustment bracket with the ratchet and socket.Pull the alternator belt out of the alternator pulley. Remove the positive battery cable from the back of the alternator.Unplug the wiring connector on the back of the alternator by squeezing and pulling out on the plug at the same time.Loosen and remove the top alternator pivot bolt .Jack the front of the Mazda 626 and place a car stand under the proper jacking point on the front driver side of the car. Lower the 626 onto the stand and leave the jack in place.Remove the driver-side front wheel with the tire tool. Place the wheel on the ground. Then, remove the plastic cover from the back of the wheel compartment by pulling the clips through the holes on the plastic cover. Lay the cover on the ground.Loosen the bottom alternator pivot bolt. Pull the bolt out as far as it will go. Then, slide the pry bar under the alternator and pry the alternator toward the passenger side of the car until the bottom bolt comes out of the alternator.Pull the alternator out of the alternator bracket with your hands. Then, pull the alternator through the wheel well and place it on the ground.
    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

04 F350 xlt with V10 died on a washboard road. Acts as if it doesn't have a battery in it. Changed battery with no response


2 possibilities come to mind. U will need a multi-meter.
1) A clip, wire or wire harness came loose. Check where wires connect, clip, bolt to each other. Look for loose connections. If u have the means to trace the start wire circuit go that route first (I'm assuming that it still is not starting).
2) Check the air intake sensor (MAF sensor). This is normally found behind the air filter. It is a small wire (about the size of a strand of hair) inside the air intake conduit. If there is a hairline fracture (no pun intended) in the wire, vehicle vibration can shut down the vehicle. There are specs online for testing resistance (ohms) for your vehicle.

Changing starter,already took out both bolts,how do I get it to break loose?


Disconnect the battery cables before removing the starter. Remove the Positive cable which also is connected to the starter positive connection. Either directly or through a solenoid. You have to remove the bolt that holds the positive to be able to completely remove the starter. in other words it may still have a bolt holding it tight. (3 bolts)

Volvo starters have unusually high problems with the connector cables. Check all the wiring going to the starter. Including the cable negative wire.
I have heard of cases where the starter is removed and the car still does not start . This is because of a bad connection somewhere between the battery, ground, and the starter.

How to drop the starter motor out of the car to the floor? I have a 1999 Mazda mpv v6


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.

How to install alternator


Disconnect negative (-) battery terminal.

Locate alternator and determine tools necessary to remove various bolts and nuts.

Loosen tensioner and remove alternator drive belt.

Remove wire clip and battery (+) wire from alternator, carefully, so you don't damage clips or threads.

Remove alternator mounting bolts.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

I have a 1998 hyundai elantra i had to push it in


hi from uk have read your symptoms and from what you have described your starting /failure to turn engine ? 1st have you checked the leads to the starter motor are secure ? especially the single thin wire that fits to the starter solenoid on a spade connector ensure it is fully clipped on ? if ok ? may i suggest you try this ?= connect a single jump lead to the earth connector post on battery then the other end of jump lead to a suitable earth connection on the engine then try starter ifthis works your problem is a faulty/corroded or loose earth connection from the battery to the chassis/andon to engine usually connected to a bolt on point where trans connects to engine ? for info i have come across this problem a few times on accents and found that for some reason the thin wire connected to starter solenoid had come loose due to not clipped fully on also the earth lead from batteries have not had clean/securety loose bolt hope this helps and wish you luck

How do replace the starter on a 1991 mazda protege


Can't remember the particular model 1998, but generally, here's how to remove the starter on a 90's Protege:
Disconnect the negative battery terminal to remove power from the starter. The starter and starter solenoid are one unit.
There should be 2 or 3 14mm bolts holding the starter to the tranny. At least one of these bolts is accessed from above the transmission, requiring the removal of (at least)the air filter housing and intake, and the battery and tray if you want to make it easy on yourself. Remove those first, then remove the top starter bolt before you go under the car. You might be able to access the top bolt from the left wheel well if you take out the plastic splash guard behind the left wheel, and have a nice long extension with a "wobbly" 14mm socket. There are a number of 10mm bolts and a few plastic fasteners that hold this on.
I believe the starter is located behind a bracket that supports the intake manifold from the engiine block. Remove the 4 bolts on this bracket and remove it from the vehicle. The starter wire may be attached to this bracket with a plastic clip, just undo the clip and the bracket should come right out. The bolts that hold the bracket on the manifold end are usually pretty hard to get to; be patient.
Once you have access to the starter, there should be either 1 or two bolts that hold the starter in on the bottom. Remove the bolts and carefully remove the starter from it's position in the transmission. Once you have the starter free, remove the starter cable and the small wire from the clip on the starter solenoid.
Re-install in reverse order.

You have a easy Job..

Wont start


sounds like your not getting power to the starter. check the connections on the battery and the starter to see if any thing is loose. if not you could try taking off the starter, and taking it to a part store and have them test it.
