Welcome to Fixya

Please see procedure below for removal and installation of the starter:

Disconnect the battery, and make sure the engine is cold when doing this because you will be working underneath the exhaust pipes. Using 8mm socket remove the bolts holding the small guard separating the starter from the exhaust. Using a 12mm socket remove the nut on the front (closest to you) part of the cylinoid on top of the starter. Using 14mm socket remove the two bolts holding the starter on to the engine. Take the old starter off, then place the new starter on and following these instructions in reverse order.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I unbolt the starter of 1999 mitsubishi galant but it is hard to take it out. There is a exhaust sensor blocking it to get it out? Would appreciate your response. Thank you

You have to remove the sensor with 7/8 wrench or a oxygen sensor socket. Or loosen the exhaust pipe at the manifold so the pipe will fall out of the way

99 mitsubishi galant , I changed the negative terminal battery post, now the car stalls when coming to a complete stop (stop sign ,red light). I cleaned both terminal posts . Suggestions? Oh, on the advise...

not the starter motor ,who said that ? no its purely coincidental that changing the battery terminal caused this problem .Now you havent stated as to type of engine diesel or petrol ? if a petrol then double your battery instalation as if what you say is correct ? then you may have either dislodged a vacumn line or touched one which has split owing to age so have a good look .Backyard mechanic like the description .Well iam a aged dinasaur old truck mechanic .WITH A BIG HAMMER
