I have a 99 Stratus. It's located in the front of the car next to the oil filter. You will need to remove the oil filter to get it out. Diconnect all of the wireing for the starter. There are 2 bolts holding the starter in place. simply remove the bolts and slide it out. replace it the same order you removed it. once you get working on it it's easy.

I have a 1998, 2.0 liter, 4 cyl with five speed manual transmission, the starter is located in front.

Disconnect the negative battery terrminal from the post on the driver's side.

Remove the air filter duct/air filter cover as a unit by loosening the hose clamp. it may be different on your particular model. With the air intake ducts and resonator out of the way the job will be much easier.

Remove the air resonator by loosening the hose clamp under the resonator on the air intake body.

Disconnect the two large wires from the starter and pull the one solenoid wire away.

Two bolts hold the starter assembly on. The one on top threads from the driver's side towards the passenger side and the one on the bottom threads the other direction.

The starter/solenoid come out from the front as a unit. Since it's a standard transmission there is no need to jack up the vehicle.

To install. reverse the procedure making sure to tighten the mount bolts to standard, connect the wires, and then the last step is to replace the negative wire to its mounting post.
