1993 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Automatic 58,000 miles
My friend just installed a starter for me today in my 1993 SL2 Saturn. As he was installing it. He noticed the hot wire going from alternator to starter was too short. So he modified the wire, so it would fit. My question is: Is the bracket (which doesn't fit the new starter) and the plastic cover (also cannot be used, because it attaches to the bracket) and plastic cover definately needed on the new starter? For some reason, it does not fit with the new starter. Is the bracket used to keep the starter solid & in place? And if the plastic cover is not attached. Will water get on the starter when it rains and u are driving?
have the same problem?
