Yes, you need to drain the primary and remove the primary cover. Just above the clutch, you'll see the jackshaft. Remove the small bolt and remove the jackshaft and your starter will come loose. There is a "coupling" that connects the starter and the jackshaft. Mark which direction it is in there. If it comes out and you don't have it marked, it can be confusing which way it goes back in.

good luck
Steve

How to change my starter? I have a 2004 HD Dyna Low Rider


Hi Hannah, start by disconnecting the battery, negative cable first. Then drain primary oil and remove primary cover. Bend the locking tab back that secures jackshaft bolt and while holding pinion gear unscrew and remove jackshaft bolt, locking tab and thrust washer. Then remove rear exhaust pipe to gain acess to starter. Disconnect all wires and cables from starter. Remove chrome starter end cover. The two bolts that hold the starter motor to the engine case are 5/16" allen heads. Now my memory is a little fuzzy since I have been out of the business for several years, but if you can procure a long straight ball head allen key or socket I think it will allow you acess to the bolts without removing the oil tank otherwise you have to remove the tank. Once you get the two bolts out you can remove the starter. Replace starter in reverse order, tighten starter bolts to 20 foot lbs. of torque jackshaft bolt 100 inch lbs. of torque. primary cover bolts 10 foot lbs. of torque. Good luck

  1. Note the radio security code, and then disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the front of the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. If installed, remove the lower engine shield.


NOTE The engine must be supported on 1990-97 Passat models as the starter mounting bolts also support the engine-to-transmission mounting surface.
  1. If necessary, label the small wires before disconnecting them.
  2. On 1990-97 Passat models:

  3. On Audi A4 and 1998-00 Passat models:
    1. Release the number 50 electrical connector from the starter.

    4. Remove the fasteners securing the bracket at the front of the starter and remove the bracket.

  4. Remove the starter mounting bolts, while supporting the weight of the starter.
  5. Pull the starter straight out from the transaxle.

To install:

NOTE On vehicles with a manual transaxle, there is a bushing where the starter shaft fits into the bell housing. If the shaft or bushing is worn or if the starter has been jamming, the bushing should be replaced. There is a special bushing removal tool available but a small inside bearing removal tool is usually sufficient.
  1. Install the starter into the transaxle.
  2. Tighten the related starter motor fasteners as follows:
  3. Starter support bracket, M5 nut: 35 inch lbs. (4 Nm)
  4. Starter support bracket, M8: 16 ft. lbs. (22Nm)
