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 do i replace my own starter on my 1987 licoln town car?


1. Raise the car and support it.
2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
3. Crawl under the car and locate the starter. It is easiest to do this by following the positive power cable from the battery down to the starter.
4. Remove positive cable from starter.
5. Remove wires from solenoid.
6. Remove bolts holding starter to the transmission bell housing.
7. Remove the starter.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

How to replace a starter in a 1996 acura tl 2.5?


  • 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.

    2003 expedition that wont start..unable to remove starter where is the third bolt that holds starter in place?


    It comes in from the opposite direction on the bell housing.You got to use a small hand wrench box style and once you break it loose enough, you can run it out, while wiggling the starter, with your fingers

    Locating and replacing starter


    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.

    All bolts and cables have been taken off. I think the starter motor is engaged into the engine because it will not come out. What do you suggest?


    Sometimes the gear and nose of the starter can become jammed when attempting removal. Try to hold the starter in bolted on position and gently pry forward on the housing between the starter and the bell housing until it comes loose then lower and remove.
