Thumbs up How to replace starter

Hello guys, I'm new to the forum. I did search for information about replacing the starter and I couldn't find anything on it. My starter just died out last night and I'm trying to see if there's any DIY sticky. Thank You in advance guys.

Re: How to replace starter

**You may or may not have to remove the distributor** (3 bolts & 2 plugs)

**May or may not need to remove air filter box and battery** (4 bolts on the box & 2 batteries hold-downs)

1. Disconnect the neg. (-) battery terminal.
2. Disconnect the pos. (+) lead to the starter.
3. Disconnect the solenoid wire (black, 1/4" female connector)
4. Unplug the starter wire harness (may be confusing this with the alternator)
5. Remove the 12mm and 14mm bolts (2 total) holding the starter to the transmission bell housing.
6. Pull the starter straight out and replace.

EDIT: Those are instructions for the I4, you didn't say which you had.

All from memory, but it's pretty straight forward.

Thank You for the instructions! I'll try it tonight after I get home from work.
