Disconnect the battery cable. 2.

Raise the car to a convenient working height. 3.

Disconnect all wiring from the starter solenoid. Replace each nut as the connector is removed, as thread sizes differ from connector to connector. Note or tag the wiring positions for installation.

On some models it may be necessary to remove the crossover pipe to complete this procedure.


Remove the front bracket from the starter and the two mounting bolts. On engines with a solenoid heat shield, remove the front bracket upper bolt and detach the bracket from the starter. 5.

Remove the front bracket bolt or nut. Lower the starter front end first, and then remove the unit from the car. 6.

Reverse the removal procedures to install the starter. Tighten the two mounting bolts.

Absolutely! And don't leave it off! That starter brace supports the heavy end of the starter and without it you may experience cracked starter housings and other expensive starter problems.
