HOW TO REPLACE OR REMOVE STARTER ON 200 V6

2000 Mitsubishi Galant • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 160,000 miles

I started removing the starter on a 200 galant. I got it disconnected but I cant get it out! It is really cramped in behind the exhaust. Is there a way to get it out without taking other things apart?

Thanks!

Sorry for the typo. Its a 2000 galant.
Here are images showing how the starter is behind the exhaust and there really isn't any room to get it out.

Hello –

Sorry to see you are having problems.

Try to take off as little as possible without damaging anything. I actually owned a Galant…. Yes not much room. Lots of twisting and turning to get it out but it will. Try not to get it wedged. Here are the directions from one of our manuals.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
STARTER MOTOR
NOTE: It may be necessary to disconnect transmission oil cooler lines, air cleaner, engine undercover and/or front actuator assembly for starter removal.
Removal & Installation
1. Disconnect negative battery cable. If necessary, raise vehicle on hoist. On Montero and Montero Sport, remove engine under cover and skid plate, if equipped. Remove right engine mount heat protector. Disconnect and label vacuum hoses from transfer case shift actuator. Remove pin from actuator operating rod and remove actuator.
2. On all models, remove starter mounting bolts and starter. To install, reverse removal procedures. On Montero and Montero Sport, ensure vacuum hoses to actuator are properly attached (Blue hose to outside surface; Yellow hose to bottom of unit, under operating rod bellows).

Please let us know if what the final fix was for your car so we can better assist others. Thanks!
