You may have to spin the gear a little so it will line up with the flywheel.

Terry you were right soaked it in wd40..drum poped off , have removed safty brakes and got all bolts out of housing..hub should come out but doesn't budge no bolts holding it and in the back have...

Well from the photo there are four bolts holding the hub assembly to the vehicle. There is a flange that probably fits quite tightly into the vehicle. With all the rust it may be very hard to dislodge. Additional WD-40 and some gentle tapping to get it to soak into the flange area may help break things loose. See photo.

Just need the instructions on how to change the starter on a 1998 GMC 1500 with a 4.3.

start by diconnecting the negative battery terminal, Locate the starter under the truck, should be 2 bolts verticaly though the starter. Loosen both of the bolts but do not remove them. On top of the starter their should be a large and a small wire connected disconnect both of them ( if u cant reach or see them remove the starter by taking out the 2 verticle bolts then remover wires) once bolts and wires are off the starter just wiggle it into postion and remove between the motor/ exausht and frame. Try to remember how it comes out will make it simpler to fit going back in. if thier isnt enough clearence u may have to notch the frame or loosen the motor mounts and raise the engine slight with a floor jack.,

How do you remove a starter motor from a toyota verso corolla


Just did this the other day on my 1993 corolla (same engine, etc).

It helps to first get the replacement starter motor so that you have something to look at and see how it looks like, and where the mounting bolts fit.

The starter motor itself is mounted on the back side of the engine with just two bolts, and it is in principle an easy replacement. The downside is that the bolts are not so easy to access, so patience and some good tools are important.

You'll have to raise the front end of the car enough to work under it. Open the hood and
disconnect the battery terminals from the battery. Go underneath the car and disconnect the cables from the old starter motor. One cable goes to a plug-in terminal (press down the retainer clip with a small screwdriver to remove, the other is fastened with a 12mm hex nut.

Now you can remove the two bolts holding the starter motor in place (14mm hex). The bottom-most bolt is accessible from below the engine and faces the passenger side of the car. If the bolt seems hard to get to, cheer up...this is the easy one :-)

The second bolt faces the DRIVER side of the car, and is accessible from under the hood. It's easy to find, but it is surrounded by a lot of cables and stuff that get in the way.
I removed the air filter and used a socket wrench with a hinged handle to get the bolt started, finishing with a regular wrench.As the second bolt loosens, you should have someone else hold the starter motor in place, and catch it as it comes off.

Getting the old starter motor out of the engine compartment is a bit of an obstacle course...I did it by moving away part of the plastic underbody cover on the passenger side. Replacement part goes back in the same way, Again, have someone hold the new starter motor in place while you reinstall the first bolt. Connect the cables to the starter motor terminal, replace anything (like the air filter) that you removed for the installation, reconnect the battery, and turn the key.

I am no mechanic, and it took me about 3 hours once I had everything I needed. Someone more competent could certainly do it faster.

Best regards.

Where do the wires go when wiring a starter motor on a 97 Hyundai accent - i have a negative wire but cant remember where to attach it

the neg wire goes on the bolt that holds the starter, there should be a positive cable wire that goes to the big bolt on the back of starter seleniod and then a small wire that goes to the small connection on the seleniod,then then neg goes to the block or one of the bolts that holds the starter in,

I'm trying to remove my starter on my 2005 pontaic sunfire. I have removed three bolts and cant seem to get the starter to budge. i've searched as much as I can see but I cant seem to see why this is still...

If all of the mounting bolts are definitly removed, then you'll want to make sure the batt (-) cable is disconnected, then either use your belts/pulleys or a socket on the Crankshaft main bolt to carefully rotate the motor (same rotation as normal) & listen for any binding & this should make sure the teeth on the flywheel/starter ring have disengaged from the starter teeth. With todays cars, tight fit is the standard & if the solenoid is holding the bendix forward as if starting, this should help to release it or loosen the bind. Hopefully you don't have a flywheel problem. If after rotating the engine, you can't get it loose, tap the end of the starter just a hair at an angle to loosen & then again from the oppsite angle to free up the starter from the mounting area. It does have to come out fairly straight due to the mounting flange but hopefully the taps will free it up if it is stuck.

Never a bad idea to look at the new part, or one at a parts store that is identical to better understand the exact fit.

Good Luck

How do I replace the starter on my 1993 chevy?

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery..
Under the front end - find the starter near where the trani connects to the motor and the really big gear (flywheel) is..
Undo 2 bolts to remove the starter.. take the wires off and be sure to put the wires on the starter the same way..
Connect the wires to the new starter and put the starter in with the to bolts.. The starter will only go in one way so you cant mess up how it goes in..

Good luck !

Well i am putting my oil pan back on my 1986 300 straight 6 ford 150 and i cant remember where these certain bolt nuts go. I have twelve of them, they should be close to or around the oil pan, they dont go...

possibly on an "inspection cover" that covers your flywheel/clutch area back on the front of the "bell housing"? Some vehicles have a cover in this area so one can inspect the clutch or the torque converter.

Starter on a 1993 chevy suburban

Hey donna88king, gotta love those starters :) actually I dont imagine you are doing anything wrong prvidind there is no thread damage, try thread the bolts first without the starter. If the starter is fitting and in place it will be just a matter of the right position there are a couple of ways to do this,first make certain that you are lined up with the hole using a screwdriver or an awl when you slide the bolt into place slightly move it in a circular motion to get by the taper if this doesnt help you try putting one bolt in the starter and lift into place using the bolt to feel the hole all that is required here is a little persistance hope this helps you good luck and take care let me know how you made out
