Hello I will help you with your quesiton,
Click here for procedure
Look this over and let me know if you have further questions about this
I do this from the top and use a long extension through and behind the manifold
I have a wobbly extension so the rear bolt is a little easier to get with that. You can do almost the same thing if you stack several short extensions together
Have you removed the plastic engine cover?
Look along the valve cover to the passenger side where the transmission and engine meet. The starter is just above the centerline of the engine.
Maybe a picture will help
This requires 1.9 hours to replace so it is not easy
The manifold is out to take the picture.
You can remove it and make your life easier, follow the procedure below.
If you do it your self it will save about $200. I'm sure you will have no problem just go ahead and remove the manifold then change the starter. It is much easier for you that way.
NO the gasket is an O ring type so it does not have to be replaced it fits in grooves in the manifold so it will stay in place.
one more question they charge me just the tip or they charge extra ?
I show you accepted the answer for $10 and paid a bonus of $20
Thank you very much and please let me know if you have further questions
ok thank you
Glad to help and thank you for using JA!! again
Look for the witness marks from where the cross member was before and hold it in exactly that place as you tighten the nuts. This should get the hood latch back where it was and the hood should close normally again.
Let me know if this works for you
Sure see below
This is really straight forward, remove the airbox, battery cable and starter
Let me know if you have further questions
You should be OK with disconnecting the battery to replace the starter just don't let it sit for weeks.
I like to use a "settings saver" that has a 9V battery in it to attach to the cables and then I wrap them in rags to insulate them from the body of the car. This maintains all the security and radio settings without worry about welding when I remove the cable from the starter or when I do an alternator. You still have to be careful with the removed cable ends and insulate those but it is much less risk.
A saver is about $5 at most autoparts stores and can save a lot of headaches.
