All except 2.3L and 2.4L (Quad -4) models

CAUTION: If it has the Delco LocII audio syatem, make sure you have the correct activation code before disconnecting the battery. 1) Disconnect the negative battery cable 2) Raise the vehicle and support on jackstands 3) Under the vehicle disconnect the solenoid wire and battery cable from the stater solenoid. 4) Remove the starter motor bolts 5) Remove the starter motor NOTE: the location of spacer shim(s) 6) Installation is the reverse of removal NOTE: Be sure to install the shim(s) in the same location

2.3L and 2.4L (Quad-4)


1) Disconnect the negative battery cable 2) Remove the intake air duct 3) Remove the cooling fan 4) Remove the oil filter 5) Remove the starter mounting bolts and pull the starter out enough to disconnect the battery cable and wiring harness from the solenoid 6) Lift the starter out between the intake manifold and radiator 7) Installation is in the reverse of removal

Edit: I just did this in my 97 4cyl and I just wanted to add to these instructions that you may have to unscrew the starter relay to get the cooling fan out. The starter relay is right next to the battery. Also, check the wires coming out of the starter relay. There is a purple wire that connects to a connector mounted above the oil filter. It's easy to accidentally unplug when you are installing the new starter, make sure you get it back in there or the car won't start.

When the pump died on my 1996 Achieva, the engine needed to be unbolted and removed to get to it. As I recall, it cost about $500. I have a 95 Olds Achieva 3.1 and the water pump was very easy to change. Mine is on the front passenger side of the engine. Very easy to get to, just be careful not to break any bolts off. lol

The starter is in front of the engine, fairly centered, and easiest to get to from underneath the car. It and the solenoid are a pair of cylinders with wires hooked to them.

Take it out and put the new one in.

It is due to your daytime running light not working properly or a burnt headlight, check your bulbs. I had the same problem and that was the problem.

After the caliper is removed, it should slide right off. If it does not slide off because of rust or dirt. The impact of a hammer should dislodge what is holding it.

The starter on a 1996 Mazda B3000 is located near the battery terminal. To change it, first unbolt the negative cable from the battery terminal and raise the right front corner of the Mazda B3000 with a jack. Unbolt the starter wiring and thread the mounting bolts through the starter. Finally, reconnect the starter wiring.
