Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the cable from the starter.
Disconnect the solenoid leads at their solenoid terminals. If necessary, tag them to avoid confusion when re-installing.
Remove the starter attachment bolts and withdraw the starter from the engine flywheel housing. On some models with automatic transmissions, the oil cooler tube bracket will interfere with the starter removal. In this case, remove the starter attachment bolts, slide the cooler tube bracket off the stud, and then withdraw the starter.
Be sure that the starter and flywheel housing mating surfaces are free of dirt and oil to make a good electrical contact.
Slide the starter in place, secure using the bolts and washers removed. Tighten the bolts to 50 ft. Lbs. (68 Nm). Connect wires and battery cable end at the starter.
If removed for clearance, reconnect the steering column shaft.
Secure the oil cooler bracket if equipped. Connect the negative battery cable on the battery.
When tightening the mounting bolt and nut on the starter, hold the starter away from the engine for the correct alignment.
