Remove a starter


  • Remove the negative and positive lead on the battery.
  • Locate the starter under the vehicle. The starter will be located to the right of the motor on the bottom. Access the bolts comfortably from underneath the truck.
  • Remove the bottom bolt with a socket wrench. The ground cable will be attached. Save the bolt for reinstalling the starter.
  • Unbolt the positive cable on top of the starter. Use a socket wrench to remove the bolt.
  • Unbolt the top of the starter with a socket wrench. The starter will be loose.
  • Pull the starter straight out. Use both hands to pull out and forward as the starter is heavy. Pull forward and lower to the ground.
Installing the Starter
  • Position the new starter in place. Match up the starter to the designated bolt holes on the mounts.
  • Start the top bolt. Turn the bolt clockwise but do not tighten the starter down.
  • Start the bottom bolt. Ensure the negative cable is run through the bolt before starting. Do not tighten the bolt.
  • Tighten the top bolt with the socket wrench. Tighten it snug. Repeat the same for the bottom bolt. Ensure both bolts are tight.
  • Tighten the positive cable to the starter. Ensure the cable is snug to the fitting.
  • Connect the terminals to the battery. Ensure the vehicle cranks. The starter will engage without hesitation if done correctly.

How to remove a starter on a 86 jaguar xj6 vanden plas starter does not function


The starter motor is located on the passenger side ( left ) side of the motor. it is held onto the motor with two bolts. Before starting the removal process you must disconnect the battery by removing the ground lead. Under the car disconnect the battery feed wires on the solonoid mounted on the starter. Also disconnect the white with red tracer wire on the solonoid. This is the wire that comes from the starter relay on the firewall. Remove the upper bolt first. You can get at it from the top of the engine bay and then remove the bottom bolt. This starter is heavy. The starters on the later cars were a lot lighter. The starter will clear the engine. Be sure to test the new starter before you install it. Installation is reverse of the removal.

How do you remove a starter from a 2001 nissan frontier


Tools needed:
10mm socket
14mm socket
player's
ratcheting wrench
long and short extension
breaker bar or Big wrench so you can put on ratchet to give you more leverage.

Starter is on the passenger side of truck attached to the transmission.

Start by disconnecting the battery. Something that will greatly help from the top is disconnect the wire from the starter going to the positive battery wire. You will thank god for this later. (it was a pain in the ****)
Remove nut from positive side of solenoid
Remove 10 mm bolt holding stainless steel lines
Remove 14 mm upper and lower bolts (I used ratcheting wrench with extension and 1" wrench to give me leverage)
There is one more 14 mm short bolt that is above tranny pan that you will need a long extension to get to.

Once you remove all bolts starter should almost fall out of place minus wire that you disconnected earlier. The one I had, had gotten caught up with other wires and I finally got aggravated and just broke the wire off to get the starter out. This is not a big deal as the new or re-manufactured starter will have this wire.

Installation:
Make sure to line up the plate right and thread in the top bolt hand tightened.
Do the same as with lower bolt.
line up bracket and thread in the short bolt tight so you don't have to mess with it again.
tighten stainless steel line back together.
Have someone push the wire up you in the upper part of the engine area and plug wire back in.
tighten all bolts and make sure to attach positive batter cable wire to starter.
Reinstall battery and give the key a turn.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the answer

How to take out the starter?


REMOVE KEY FROM IGNITION!!!!!! (SAFETY FIRST!!!!) UNHOOK..AND REMOVE THE BATTERY! DO NOT attempt this with the battery IN car..way too many things to go wrong.
Remove the battery and tray.

LOOK to the REAR of the engine,you'll see the TOP of the starter.. Loosen and remove the 14MM bolt/nut holding it on now down below

Drain radiator and Remove the lower radiator hose. This will let you squeeze the starter around the AC line.

THEN install the new starter,the one bolt you removed from the bottom,screw in the LAST 14MM bolt on the starter into the transmission LOOSELY!!!!!!!

GO up top,reinstall the TOP bolt,TIGHTEN THIS ONE FIRMLY,but NOT all the way... Go below,tighten the bottom bolt to final spec. RE-ATTACH ALL THE WIRES...make sure the trigger wire is snapped in fully. GO up top,FIRMLY tighten to spec the top bolt.. Re-install everything you removed up top then down below Reinstall the battery(MAKE SURE THE IGNITION IS OFF!!!!!) Hook up battery...

LOOK AT EVERYTHING...see if ANYTHING is loose.. CHECK EVERY BOLT YOU TOUCHED TO SEE THAT IT IS TIGHT, MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE IN PLACE... Crank it...Does it crank?? it should fire MUCH better then when you started....good luck..
