I would like to know please the step by step direction for replacing a starter on my 2002 Honda Accord LX 4 cylinder coupe.

I want to replacement the starter because when I go to start the car sometimes it will just click at the starter,

This will happen one or two times then its starts fine or sometimes it does not happen at all (starts fine).

One question first, do you have the anti-theft radio code for your radio?

Expert:  importdoctor replied 8 years ago.

ok good. You will need this once completed

Do you have an automatic or manual transmission?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
sorry, manual transmission
Expert:  importdoctor replied 8 years ago.

Ok, here we go:



You will need a metric set of sockets here.

THe first diagram shows retainers, once the battery is disconnected you will need to remove the nut under the rubber boot to disconnect the positive battery terminal from the starter, then remove the electriacl connector at the solenoid.

Now simply remove the 2 long bolts that hold the starter up to the bell housing and slide the starter out. Installation is reversed of removal!

Should I remove the battery and battery box for better access or remove the starter from the bottom of the car?
Expert:  importdoctor replied 8 years ago.
That's your call honestly, what ever is easiest for you. I understand that you are probably doing this in your driveway with limited tools so what ever works for you here. The 2 big bolts for the starter will be quite tight to break free with hand tools so you will need to be able to get some leverage here.
