How do replace the starter on an '06 Sebring Sedan, 2.7L V6. What tools are needed (US or Meteric or both, etc)?

Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

 

 

All of the nuts and bolts are metric on it. It helps to use a 13mm swivel socket on the starter bolts but you can use a wrench if you need to. Also, a 7/8 open end wrench for the 02 sensor, or an 02 sensor socket.

 

Let me give you the steps for the starter and also the front engine mount bracket. You don't have to remove the entire mount, just the bracket

 

 

 

REMOVAL

  1. Open Hood.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise vehicle and support.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from the 02 sensor.
