Look this over and let me know what further questions you have
Do you have a list of the tools and sizes I will need to complete this job?
YOu will need a set of metric sockets including an 8,10, 12, 13 , 14 and 15 mm with a 3 and 6 inch extension in 3/8" drive, a jack and jack stands and what ever ends you have on your battery. If the cable ends have been replaced you may need a 1/2" open end wrench, battery terminal cleaner and channel lock pliers.
There is a TSB about the crimped end of the positive cable coming loose at the starter so you may have to use a pair of vise grips to cinch that a little tighter as well, if it is not loose don't bother with it.
Please let me know how I can help you
We're almost there any deep well or swivels required?
No, you should have a straight shot at the bolts, no deep wells but swivels are always a plus if you have them available. Power (air) tools make getting into the tight spaces easier but on the 4 cylinder it is not bad. The 3.2 (V6) is really tight though.
The 4 cylinder starter replacement calls for .6 hours "book" time so not bad
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you with this
Thank You for your time.
