How do you replace the starter on a 2004 Honda Element


Removing the starter unit on a first or second generation element is the same process.
There is also another way to remove the starter unit without removing the intake manifold like many other people post out there.
I am a Honda certified technician and always find ways to speed up my flat rate time when working on various models.
The process I used was faster for me, this may not be helpful or easier for others, based on skill level but some people would rather just remove the intake manifold and access the starter right underneath.
Here is how I removed the starter on a 2004 Honda Element without removing the Intake Manifold.

I first removed the serpt belt and then un bolted the powersteering pump and set it aside. I did not have to disconnect any hoses at all.

Next step, I unplugged the knock sensor harness and set it a side.

Next, I used a 3/8 12in extention and a 14mm wobble socket and reached down to unbolt the starter's upper mounting bolt.

Next few steps are underneath the vehicle.

The next step for me was to remove the front lower splash guard.

Once removed, there was a bracket directly in front of the starter that I had to remove in order to ease the aid of removing the starter unit.

The next step for me was to remove the starter's lower mounting bolt.

At this point I was able to pull the starter away from the transmission and twist it around to access and remove the blade harness and 12mm power/charge harness.

installation is reverse of removal.

This process was eaiser for me since I had always removed the intake manifold on the Element, CR-V and 4cylndr Accords.

I was trying to think outside the box and this process worked out fine for my solution.

Need to replace starter


I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. Start by removing the negative battery terminal, then removing the retaining bolts from the starter followed by removing the wires from the starter. Reverse the process to put the new starter on.

98 Durango will not turn over, replaced battery, battery cables, had started checked. Just get a clicking noise at starter like a dead battery. Will start some times.


Sounds like a bad connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.
STARTER MOTORREMOVAL:-1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.2. Raise and support the vehicle.3. Remove the nut and lock washer securing the starter motor to the mounting stud on the transmission torque converter housing Starter Motor Remove/Install4. While supporting the starter motor with one hand, use the other hand to remove the upper mounting screw from the starter motor.5. Slide the automatic transmission cooler tube bracket forward on the tubes far enough for the starter motor mounting flange to be removed from the lower mounting stud.6. Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7. Tilt the nose downwards and lower the starter motor far enough to access and remove the nut that secures the battery positive cable connector eyelet to the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.8. Remove the battery positive cable connector eyelet from the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.9. Disconnect the battery positive cable wire harness connector from the solenoid terminal connector receptacle. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.10.Remove the starter motor from the engine compartment. --This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Draging, really loud when starting


was the starter recently replaced? if yes, needs shims to aling the gears properly. This is a trial and error process. If not, well you need a new starter.

Where is the selenoid on a 1992 olds 88, and is it difficult to replace


Hi there,

Not difficult at all,

Two bolts for the starter
Two nuts for the starter wires
Two screws for the solenoid

The actual process is a bit more complicated, but only marginally. I was trying to give you the complexity level you requested

Best regards

Bad starter


Don't mean to be a wiseguy but: disconnect the battery, unbolt the starter & disconnect the wires on starter. Get a new starter and reverse the process!!!
Except for stuff being in the way, which you will have to deal with as necessary, that's about it!!! There are no complicated or "secret" tricks on this one!!!
