how do i replace the starter in my 1999 Saturn SL2. I have the vehicle up, have disconnected the battery, and have the terminals on the solenoid disconnected. I have one bolt out (there appears to be one more that is much more difficult to get to) and then what else???
Saturn SL2 4 cly
Here are the instructions for removing it. There are 2 bolts, the one on the top is going to be difficult to remove. You will need an extension to go over the top and behind the solenoid to get at it. You might also want to put that lower bolt back in there, and remove the top one first, so the weight of the starter isnt on the top bolt when you are removing it.
You should be able to clear the bracket near the end of the starter by pulling the starter out and away from the engine.
If you have further questions on this, please feel free to reply.
