Motorcycle Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic ASAP
Hello how are you
good need to know how to change a starter on a 2003 polaris manum 330 4x4 atv
Are you having problems
Problems removing it?
I can give you the instructions, just looking to see if you were having problems with anything specific
no just need directions already have battery disconnected and starter bolts loose but cannot remove
Ok, give me a moment to look some info up
Once the 2 bolts are removed the starter will need to be lighlty pryed and wiggled out. The nose of the starter builds up corrosion between it and the case, it sounds to me as though this is your problem.
do not have room to get bolts out all the way...housing in the way
The trick is to pull the starter back some this will bring the bolts further inward allowing you to finish unscrewing them
will try, hang on
still having trouble....there isn't much room between back of starter where bolts are and another piece...bolts seem to be really long
The bolts are behind the clutch correct
yes...it seems the belt housing is in the way, needs to be pulled back..can that be done?
At this point you will need to remove the clutch to gain the room needed to get those bolts out. Unfortunatly to remove the clutch you will need a clutch tool to get it off. Give me a moment and i will get you a pic of the tool as well as a place to order one. Unless you have a dealer close by
my husband is working, i am typing....looks like they got one bolt loose, so it's closer...
I have been able to cheat and sneak those bolts out in the past.
he sure is trying!
Its not easy
Polaris says to remove the clutch but they assume everyone has the special tools needed
of course....he finally got it off, but wants you to stay online in case there's any other trouble...
Thats no problem.
