Hey everybody

I just got a warning sign from my starter that there is trouble ahead. It would not start, I heard the clicking of the soleniod but no cranking. Then about ten minutes later it turned over. Sounds like the starter is on its way.
I Know that I neen a 10mm allen key. WHat I dont know is if there are any easy ways of removing the unit. I did a search and read that if the wheels are turned the right way it will come out. I also heard that if it is on ramps that removal is easy. Does that make sense to anyone. Maybe the steering stuff is not in the way when it is ramped.

Any advice as always is appreciated

I look foward to sharing my knowledge with you all when I master this car

Thanks again and happy fourth of July

To me it's a pain whether it's on ramps or a lift. You just have to move the wheels back and forth until you find the correct opening.

With the passenger wheel in the air, remove the idler arm bolt (5" long?). Then you will be able to get the old starter out (upside down) through that opening.
