How do you change a starter in a 1995 Mazda mpv?
1 disconnect battery. (the wires to the starter pack a whallop if they short out or ground unexpectedly) 2 disconnect wires to solenoid. (the solenoid is on the starter. the main wire from the battery goes straight down to the starter. follow this under and behind the engine to find the starter location) 3 unbolt starter from transmission. (there are two if i recall, maybe three) 4 installation is the reverse, but you'll have to reset the the stereo and clock when you are done.
