Starter location and replacement?

2 Answers


Starter is by the Flywheel or Flex-plate. Or where the Transmission and Trans-axle bolt up to the engine.

Left side of the engine where it joins to the gearbox, look for a cylinder with wires coming off it. Undo the wires, undo 2 17mm bolts (easier if your under the car) and pull it out. Fitting new unit is as easy as putting on your socks!
