REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

To install:

Position the new starter assembly to the engine block and start the mounting bolts in by hand.

Snug all bolts while holding the starter squarely against its mounting surface and fully inserted into the pilot hole. Tighten the mounting bolts to 15-20 ft. lbs. (21-27 Nm).

Reconnect the starter cables and wires to the starter motor. Tighten the screw and washer assemblies to 70-130 inch lbs. (8-15 Nm).

Lower the vehicle, then connect the negative battery cable.

When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles (16 km) or more for the PCM to relearn the strategy.
