The cable connects to the battery. Go to Walmart or any autoparts store and buy a new cable.

How To Change A Starter In MK2 VW Manual Transmission

The starter is mounted between the engine and radiator, bolted to the transmission. To start with, you will need to disconnect the battery cable at the positive terminal of the battery, and lay it out of the way. Jack up the front of the car and support with jack stands. You will need another jack and a piece of wood to sit under the oil pan to support the motor, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the 2 large wires from the starter solenoid, usually held on with a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, into the motor mount, usually a 17mm bolt heads, or an allen head bolts. Pull the starter away from the transmission and remove the starter. You should also replace the small bronze round starter bushing that is mounted in the transmission, where the end of the starter goes in. This bushing often wears out and won't keep the armature shaft from moving when starting the car. When you reinstall the new starter, you may have to jack up or lower down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. Tighten the 2 17mm starter bolts, and reinstall the 2 large wires on the large terminal on the starter, reconnect the small wire to the solenoid. Remove the jack and piece of wood from underneath the motor. Reconnect the positive battery cable and lower the car down, job done.

If I Follow the positive battery cable it will go to a piece that the end of the cable will bolt to, just on the other side of this piece another cable bolts on then run to the starter, WHAT is this piece,...

A black wire runs directly from the battery to the starter. A second black wire runs from the starter to a 175A mega fuse that protects the alternator.

My 2002 saturn has no power, or even dash, or dome lights.

Check for a fusible link going either to the starter or inside the car on drivers side by fuse box they are usually found by either a little round black piece on. Them that looks like a fuse or a larger wire that has a smaller wire on the end of it I can tell you for sure most fusible links on Chevy's are brown anecdotes he go to the starter the older Chevys anyhow

My windows on the driver side will not roll down. I have checked the fuses and all are fine. The driver and left passenger door window switches have stopped working. How do I fix this?

open the drivers door and pull back the boot that goes between door and body. all the wires run through it. you will find one or two wires in there that have broken in half. get a piece of wire the same gauge as the broken ones about 4 inches will do.put a crimp but connector on each end of the piece of wire then stripe and conect to each end of broken wire.loop the extra wire so it lays flat the loop keeps it from breaking again

Ford au 01 xr6 falcon, engine stopped while driving, now has full power in battery but engine wont turn over

does it clcik? turn on your headlights and try cranking the engine over, if the lights don't dim then your wire to your starter is not recieving power to the starter solnoid. there is a round device monted on the side near the battery that has a wire that goes to the battery and one that goes to the starter then there will be one small wire which actavates the starter take a pair of jumper cables place the car in park turn the key to the run postion hook up one end of the cable to the positive side of the battery and the other end to the small wire if it cranks over it means the wire is not working and will have to be tested for aa bad fuse or a fuseable link. Next hook the cable that is connected to the positive side of the battery and connect it to the other side of the solinoid that goes to the starter if it cranks yo know the solinoid is good if it does not replace the solinoid and that should fix your problem. If it does not crank on the first test replace the solinoid anyway, if it still does not work the starter is bad or loose/ You can remove the starter and take itto autozone and they can test it for free. Hope this helps get you up and going and if it does not post what you find here on the e-mail you recieve. Thanks for your time.
