The starter bolts to the engine, and you may be able to leave it in place, but I would remove it to get the extra "wiggle" room.
If you can't get to the top bolts with extensions and universal joints, then you will have to take out the cross member and drop the rear of tranny to allow a gap to get to the top bolts

I'm trying to remove the transmission because it needs to be rebuilt. I cannot locate the bell housing cover however in order to remove the torque converter to drive plate bolts. Can you assist?

There is an inspection plate under the car at the bell housing. Remove the bolts and hand turn the engine over and start removing these bolts you see.

Where is the starter?

Regardless of engine orientation, transverse (front wheel drive) or longitudinal (rear wheel drive), the starter is always found at the junction of the engine and transmission bell-housing.
The starter drives a ring gear located within the the bell-housing and is normally bolted with 2-3 long bolts.

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.

    I need a diagram to get the starter out of my 1998 Ford Escort.

    Your starter is located on the back side of the engine at the top of the transmission bell housing, under the intake manifold. You can reach the main battery wire, and switch wire, by reaching from the right hand side under the intake manifold, the starter mounting bolts can be accessed by removing the air intake hose. Hope this helps, let me know.

    How to remove the transmission in a 1993 lincoln continental

    this is an older rear wheel drive car you don't need to remove motor, i would along with these instructions get a repair manual (Haynes) for reference purposes, jack up the front of the car , support on frame with jack stands, remove battery cables, remove starter, all electrical plugs on tranny, then remove access panel for torque converter bolts located at lower front of bell housing, after access plate removal rotate torque converter to the point where you can not only unscrew converter bolts but also remove drain plug to drain converter. To stop converter from turning during removal of nuts you must lodge a large screwdriver between the flywheel gear teeth and the engine block at an appropriate location ( at starter location usually) after removing all torque convert.nuts jack up slightly or support trans with trolley jack and 1 ft length of wood under pan, proceed to remove all bell housing bolts except for the top one, remove that one last after removing the drive shaft of course, also make sure you remove the transmission crossmember after jacking up trans slightly. the idea is to allow the tranny to only be attached at the end of removal by the one top bell housing bolt and supported by the trolly jack and two bye four or better 3/4 in thick 1 ft X 1ft plywood board after unscrewing the last bolt the trans. can be pulled back away from the motor and lowered down. the installation is reversal but aligning the torque converter to engine can be problematic sometimes (patience and strength) you can do it!

    Replacemy starter

    make sure to disconnect the battery first. The starter is located under the exhaust manifold.... top two bolts come in through the bell housing and thread into the top two holes of the starter (easily accessed top side next to the battery) the bottom bolt is threaded into the bell housing of the transmission easy to get from under the car. Two wires connect to the solonoid on the top of the starter... one is a 13 mm nut the other is a plastic clip once both of them are disconnected the starter is small enough to slide out between the engine and the rack and pinion dropping it down. reverse this to place the new one in... Hope this helps
