Where is the starter on a mitsubishi lancer 02

Asked by Nov 24, 2013 at 03:16 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm having  a lot of trouble finding the starter on this car, and I can't find a diagram anywhere. We had a massive freeze here and the car tries to start almost sounds like it's going to make it then just starts clicking instead. I was hoping someone could tell me how I could get around to finding the starter so I may replace it...then again it's sunday I might not be able to.

the starter motor is going to be on the bell-housing with a RED cable leading to the starter solenoid....increase the available amps to the starter by cleaning the battery cable that leads to the motor block...and the chassis ground too...assure the battery is younger than five at which time the batteries will stop accepting a charge~ get a NEW battery...be sure connections are free of corrosion...use a gardenhose to get them clean if necessary~

LEAD is not used for car batteries anymore...instead tin/antimony alloy is what is used...it will stop accepting a charge approximately ten percent per year...02 is a long time ago and am surprised that yours even still holds a charge...this is your problem...brother, it's a BAD battery~
