Remove 13 mm nut holding batt cable to starter. remove single wire starter solenoid connector. remove 2 15mm bolts holding starter to bellhousing and remove. starter shim is marked "up" so you can't get it back in wrong.

The starter nut is accessable but the whole bolt spins with the nut..how do you get behind the starter of a 87 bmw 325is to hold down the bolt and loosen the nut.


the BMW M20 motor's stater is bolted through to the transmission and needs a "Torx" style socket, the alternative bolt head is a 17mm that needs to be braced by a wrench accordingly.

On a 2001 Town & Country, how do you locate & remove the bolts holding the starter? I can find one bolt, but I'm going nuts trying to remove the starter.


1. The Upper Bolt is easily accessed from the front of the vehicle going OVER the radiator. It is partially hidden by a black brace. There is a black ground wire going to where a nut(s) are located. This first nut will allow you to take off the ground connection, however the bolt has another nut further in (to the left) which is totally hidden. Remove this first nut.
2. After the first nut is off, remove the ground wire, then using a deep socket 15mm socket remove the second nut which is attached to the bolt.
3. Go under the vehicle to remove the wires from the Starter. The first wire is the positive cable (should be red) attached on the solenoid portion of the starter. That is a 13mm nut, Remove the nut and lock washer and detatch the wire. The second wire (single small gauge) goes to the solenoid and is connected using a slide lock - press release connection. It is difficult to see the slide lock and the press release located on the top side of the connection. Slide the red slide lock out and press the release, and pull out the connection straight out. Do not force it, or it may damage the connector. Note the placement of the bottom bolt position on the Starter. DO NOT remove the two (2) small, but long connector bolts on the wire connection end of the starter.
4. Remembering the noted postion: remove the lower 15mm bolt from the Starter. The bolt head is located on the back side of plate moving towards the left side of the Van. It is easily accessed from underneath in front of the transmission. Near the end of removing this bolt, support the starter or it will fall out.
5. Remove the Starter, noting the position of the starter. There should be a separate starter facing plate. If if didn't come down with the starter check up in the starter to flywheel opening and remove the plate.
6. Installation is Reverse of above. The facing plate is a little tricky getting it to stay in place. By starting with the bottom bolt it is easier, Make sure you continuously support the Starter in position to save crossthreading the bolt or starter. Hand tighten only the bottom bolt as youwnat to be able to turn the starter slightly to get the top bolt in.
Starter Bolts are tigthen to 35 ft-lbs.

How do you replace starter motor on zafira 54 plate 1.6 16v ?


the starter motor is placed at the back of the engine and is quite tricky to get to,there are two 13mm bolts holding it on.the bottom is quite easy to get out but the top bolt is a bolt with a extra thread on the end with another nut which holds the earth cable in place,you first have to remove the 13mm nut and earth cable and then get a deep 13mm socket and remove the bolt.then simply take out your old starter and replace new one then put top bolt in,put earth cable back on and then the nut told cable and bottom nut then its done!!! jope this helps.
