Try a little "W-D 40" or similar stuff.

Soak the bolts (near the threads) and let it sit for awhile.

Make sure you have your socket wrench turned the correct way for "loosen". << Believe it or not, this is a common mistake.

I have the starter all unbolted but it wont come off, do they get wedged & i need to pry it off? Ty


BOTH bolts are removed? Yes, sometimes they can stick. Usually light prying under the collar with a large screwdriver or fine tip prybar...NOT a large hammer preferably but some people dont mind beating up a known bad starter they are removing anyway..get the screwdriver between the bellhowsing and the starter collar and it should free up relatively easily. If you cannot make it move and you are certain you didnt leave one of the bolts in and accidentally remove a bolt NEXT TO one that holds the starter...you could also try spraying some WD40 or equivalent on the collar...that has been known to help.

How to replace positive battery cable on 2003 Mazda MPV?


A replacement will just bolt on. Follow the existing one back and you'll find a plastic cover that should remove. Under that you'll see the wire bolted down.

Yes, you have to take the starter off. The starter bolts keep that side of transaxle to engine block- take the starter off. Have you disconnected the negative battery cable from the battery? You must do that before taking off the starter electrical connections.
Since you are taking out the transaxle to engine bolts, then you should have the transaxle ready to pull back and drop. Has everything been removed from the transaxle, so it is free?

Remove and replace starter


Replacing starter is not a difficult job.The vehicle needs to be lifted up on jack stands.The starter needs to be accessed from under the car. --------- You need to remove 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.

Accessing the top starter bolt,sometimes takes time. The top bolt comes from the transmission side on top.

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 locate starter motor in mazda 323F


The starter motor is located on the back side of the engine (closest to the firewall) underneath the fuel injection/intake manifold. To replace it, first disconnect the battery, then remove the main power cable (heavy wire) and the start wire (light wire). Next remove the two bolts for the intake manifold support bracket and remove bracket. Remove one bolt on starter rear support bracket and 3 bellhousing flange bolts (two accessible from starter side, on accessible from bellhousing side). the starter is now free and can be taken out form teh passenger's side (LHD).

Don't bother repairing it...I would call up a local wrecker and get a swap over...shouldn't cost you more than $30 - $50
