The starter on a '98 V-6 Passport is located at the bottom of the engine along the transmission housing on the drivers side. It is only accesible via the bottom of the car, so you'll have to get the car up on blocks or a lift. I've never removed one (yet), but it looks to me like you have to remove the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter in order to get the thing out of there. Removal of the actual starter is the easy part, as it only has 2 bolts holding it in.
I own a 1998 Honda Passport V6 2WD. Yesterday I replaced my stater. It is very easy to replace. I parked my passport with the driver side wheels on the curb, this way i did not have to use a jack. I went underneath and removed the two bolts (16mm) that held the starter in place, and then removed the wiring from the starter with 14mm socket and then the plug which was all very easy to do. After doing of this I removed the starter with no problems, I DID NOT have to remove the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter. Just be careful with all the debris and dirt underneath your vehicle, i had some fall into my eyes. I went to autozone and bought a new one for $124 with the Core (without the Core is +$50). In all it took me about 20 minutes to do. Like I said it is very easy and can be done without the removal of the exhaust pipe which everyone thinks is needed to be done. Have fun and be careful
You have to remove the exhaust manifold to get to the starter.
you have to drop exhaust be able to remove starter.
You have to remove the cross over section of the exhaust
Under the front exhaust manifold. You have to remove the manifold to remove the starter.
You have to remove the exhaust pipe from exhaust manifold on starter side. Now you have access. Get exhaust pipe to exhaust manifold gasket first, you will probably need to replace it after taking them apart.
Remove the front exhaust manifold and remove it from the top.
it is on the driver side just beneath the exhaust manifold. you will need to remove the exhaust or the cv joint to drop the starter
Remove the front exhaust manifold and remove the starter from the top.Pull the front exhast manifold and dipstick remove the 3 bolts with a 15mm socket or wrench pull the starter from the top
First, remove the negative battery cable. Then remove the wires off of the starter. Then remove the 3 bolts that hold the starter on and work it out around the exhaust.
You will probably have to remove the exhaust system to get it down.
You must remove the exhaust pipe and the water pipe that goes over the starter. Then the (2) two bolts that hold the starter in, next remove the cable to the starter - remove the starter. Be sure to unhook battery before attempting anything. Reverse procedure to install.
1. Jack the vehicle up 2. Remove nuts holding "y" exhaust pipe 3. lower exhaust 4. remove starter bolts(2) and wiring, but only after battery is disconnected 5. Starter will wiggle out of it's position
disconnect the negative battery cable. raise the vehicle. remove the 2 electrical connectors on the starter solenoid. remove the 2 bolts holding the starter in noting the position of the starter shim if equipped with one. remove starter from vehicle. installation is the reverse. You will have to remove the exhaust cross over pipes first.
Remove the neg battery cable. Then fp;;pw the pos cable to the starter and remove the wires from the starter/ Next, remove the mounting bolts and work it out among the exhaust and cooler lines.
remove the starter bolts your 12v power supply and ignition wire then remove exhaust bolts from manifold a few twist and turns and out she comes
How do you remove a starter from a 1995 Camero, I know it's from the bottom but the exhaust system is in the way.
The starter on a !996 Acura is on the passenger side near the firewall. It is above the exhaust and is difficult to remove.
To replace it remove the battery terminal so you will not have power. Loosen the bolts (use liquid wrench or wd40 for this will be rusty) exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold (driver side) and then you need to loosen the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold to the part where it connect exhaust pipe from the other side of the exhaust manifold (passenger side) and then you need to loosen the electrical wire from the starter and then loosen the bolts that connect the starter now you can wiggle the starter to pull it out you need to try to figure out how to get it through the loosen exhaust pipe ( but it should come out)
you do not need to remove the exhaust. with some minor manuevering, it should slide out a bit towards he front of the vehicle.
No you do not have to remove manifold. It is a tight fit to get starter out and then back in again,,,have patience and play the wiggle game,,g luck have fun.
REMOVAL 2.4L 4-Cylinder Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable. Raise and support vehicle. Remove solenoid wire from solenoid terminal (STARTER ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS - 2.4/3.7L). Remove battery cable from stud on starter solenoid (STARTER ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS - 2.4/3.7L). Remove 2 starter mounting bolts (STARTER - 2.4L) and remove starter from vehicle. 3.7L V-6 Disconnect and isolate negative battery cable. Raise and support vehicle. Remove 2 flange bolts securing left exhaust downpipe to crossover pipe. Lower pipe slightly to allow front propeller shaft removal. Remove front propeller shaft. Remove 2 starter heat shield bolts at side of starter (STARTER HEAT SHIELD - 3.7L). Remove starter heat shield nut at front of starter (STARTER HEAT SHIELD - 3.7L). Remove starter heat shield. Remove solenoid wire from solenoid terminal (STARTER ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS - 2.4/3.7L). Remove battery cable from stud on starter solenoid (STARTER ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS - 2.4/3.7L). Remove 2 starter mounting bolts (STARTER - 3.7L). Position front of starter to face rear of vehicle. Rotate starter until solenoid position is located below starter. Remove starter from vehicle by passing it between exhaust pipe and transmission bellhousing.
disconnect battery, lift car, unbolt starter with 9/16 socket two bolts on the rear of the starter. unbolt bracket on the front of the starter with 1/2 inch socket. disconnect battery cable from starter and the S wire from the starter. reverse order to install. make sure every thing is tight. if the starter wont drop out past the exhaust as on some models remove exhaust pipe at the flange above the starter and loosen exhaust flange on drivers side.
You might have to take the motor mounts bolt and disconnect the exhaust after the Y and at the monifolds and lift the motor slightly to get the starter out.
Disconnect the battery. Unhook the wiring on the end of the solenoid. If there is a support bracket on the end of the starter, unhook it. If the exhaust is in the way, unhook that. Remove the two bolts that hold the starter to the back of the block.
You must lift the vehicle up and remove the oil filter and then remove the exhaust pipes from both sides of the manifolds. Then remove the heat shield around the starter. Unplug the top wire then take off the other two wires that are held on with nuts on the solenoid and remove 3 bolts holding the starter to the bell housing. The starter can then be removed. Very tough job. The bolts holding the exhaust is the worst. The top bolt holding the stater on is a little hard to get to but can be done with a THIN ratchet.
