I am having the same problem with my 1993 Mazda 626. If you don't feel up to the challenge, take it in to a pro! But my best advice is: Disconnect your battery. There should be 3 or 4 bolts holding your starter motor to your vehicle... take those off. Remove the wires going into the starter. Then you should have something going into your firewall. Do your best to jimmy it out of the hole, and your starter should come free. Sound simple, but it may take you anywhere from 10 min to 3 hours.
OH.. to find your starter, follow the + cable from your battery.
I have never heard of an Automatic Starter. Are you talking about a Remote Starter? Now if you are asking if an A/T equipped Mazda and a Manual Transmission equipped Mazda have the same starter, the answer is yes, they are identical.
AnswerRight under the back intake manifold
The Mazda 2 with a manual transmission.
its on the tranny, drivers side lower porton of the bell housing
found it, it's under the manafold in the back Specify that you were looking for the automatic transmission starter because the Manual transmission has the starter right below the battery and air filter 15mm bolts btw
NO, but the entire wheel assembly will have to be removed.
Yes, a 2004 Mazda 6 can be converted from an automatic transmission to a manual transmission. However, it is very time consuming and will cost a lot of money to do this.
the starter is located between transmission and engine down intake manifold
A 2009 Mazda 6 does come with the choice of automatic or manual transmission, however the prices of each are not the same, as manual is slightly more expensive.
The 2006 Mazda MAZDA6 has a 5-speed manual.
The 2007 Mazda MAZDA5 has a 5-speed manual.
The 2013 Mazda MAZDA3 has a 5-speed manual.
