starter motor.......

Gday wondering if any one can help me.

ive had this problem for a little while where the starter motor was turning over fairly slowly compared to normal.

my day started out allright. i was heading to LTDHO's to give him some money i had owed him.

left geelong headding to melbourne, i had to get some go juice. filled up, paid get in car to leave................starter motor crapped itself

after sitting ther for a while trying to start....to get click click, i thought i'd try the "bash starter with lenth of steel pipe" trick, which worked.

anyhows got it going continued onto LTD's place, was there for a while so i turned off. went to go home and it did it again.


anywayz cutting a long story short. he gave me an almost new one he had for a verry reasonable price.....thanks again mate


my question is this....... how do i go about replacing it..... anything special i should do? any special way to line it up or anything?

i'll be grateful for any replies... i would love to be able to start my car without having to bash the starter motor


end note..... im glad i didnt take my levelride bars out of the car else i wouldnt have had any bashing tools tehehe

Re: starter motor.......

1. disconnect battery
2. undo cables of starter
3. undo the bolts that hold the starter in place
4. starter should drop out
5. repeat 4,3,2,1

Re: starter motor.......

No mate no special tools needed execpt for stands & trolley jack.
There is only 3 small bolts holding it together from memory* they are a 12 13 or 14 mm ringy heheheh as i said from memory.
you undo the bolts from the bellhousing side, just remember to disconnect the battery lead.

Re: starter motor.......

If you have extractors you may find they get in the way. I had to take out my sway bar so I could get the starter out.
