2009 Mazda BT50 with new starter motor and battery will not turnover the starter motor 8 out of 10 tries

Check grounds. 3 main ones are battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body. Also check for corrosion at the battery. I have seen corrosion travel in the positive cable 6 inches.

Ashtray light connection loose

this is part of the park-dimmer circuit (CR-V)
to fix this, requires only access and risk.
most folks ignore it but not me, id risk breaking this old plastic.

the FSM covers this ,so is no secret, "body section"
alldata dot com might in the body section
in some cases you must remove the front bezzel
they pry off, (risk) and gain access to the lamp holder.
if you look on line at the parts section of any online honda dealer
you can see the full blow up drawing and all those hidden clips
for free. ever do that, buy a part online at a dealer yet?
i use special plastic pry bars to pull these.

see body pages. the real FSM shows removing just about anything on car. get the FSM.

My Honda 2004 CR-V develops a howling noise from the rear of the car after about 20 miles of driving. I have changed the rear differential fluid, and burnished the differential clutches per Honda Service...

A howling noise from a diff is an indication of the gear mesh( pinion to crown wheel) is not correct. Several reasons being worn pinion bearings--loss of preload on the pinion bearings --- crown wheel carrier bearings failing ---not sufficient preload on the bearings---wear on the teeth from incorrect diff oil in use. or simply wrong diff oil. The grade should be 80w90 OEP for normal or special oil for limited slip diffs.

Hi have an old 1996 Honda Big Red 300 FW ATV (four wheel motorbike farm use), the starter motor has gone in it. Want to be able to take out the starter motor to get it fixed but can't seem to get it out,...

Some times this job is just patience and persistence. Make sure you've got all the body panels, sections of wiring harness etc out of the way to make it easier.
Disconnect the wires from the starter. NOTE these terminals can snap if your too rough.
remove the two mounting bolts at the end nearest to you.
The motor should slide out. If not wriggle it and GENTLY lever it side to side. It should drop out.

Where is the location of starter motor '95 BMW 318i

It will be close to the bottom of the engine block where the transmission meets the engine. Disconnect battery before touching the wires and note where wich wire went. Be sure you know the code for your passive theft protection for your radio if it has that feature because it will probably need to be reentered after reconnecting the battery.
