Question about 1998 Pontiac Bonneville
Open the hood, disconnect the battery .get under the front of the vehicle. you should know what a starter looks like ........ there is a small bolt holding the wire and a dirt protector that must come off first. then you'll be able to access the two 15mm bolts , you'll need a socket extension to reach the one in the back. their parallel to each other/ front bolt back bolt/ then a 5/8 socket to remove the feed wire from the battery to the starter unit and i think a 1/4" to remove the smaller terminal screw. take care in removing, there's a little bit of a shift and twist to get it out- remember too that you need to check both POITIVE AND NEGATIVE wire connections to the battery, clean them and also check continuity of cables.... ONE LAST NOTE, PAY ATTENTION TO WHERE THE WIRES GO, MAKE SURE YOU PUT THEM ALL BACK ON, DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE NUTS ON THE STARTER TERMINALS, IF YOU DO YOU MAY DAMAGE OR RUIN A NEW STARTER SOLENOID.
