It is important to be sure your battery is fully charged and in good condition before condemning your starter. Drop heat shield, maybe remove a crossbrace that's only for the frame of the car, and hopefully I can get it that way - otherwise, I'll have to drop the exhaust out of the car, unbolt the transmission brace, and jack the front of the engine up some - and try again. I made studs 10 x 1. Worked when it was dropped off and now it doesn't after picking it up : August 16, 2012 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Check to make sure the pump is plugged. Most of the photos are not of the model your working on anyway.
I also bent the bracket on the oil dipstick tube out of the way to get more room to wiggle starter out.

Performance Gain: Reliable and working starter Complementary Modification: Replace battery Need to buy parts for this project? April 28, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: You may need to remove parts to get the ratchet and socket right up to the bolt, with the extension. The labor is the expensive part since it takes a few hours to get to. As indicated in , the nuts that hold the starter in place may be very difficult to hold when tightening up the bolts.
Would taking all that crap off give me significantly better access to the bolt? April 19, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: There should be only one large and one small cable. August 10, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Thanks for the follow up. Instead, it has reinforced mounting ears 2-3x the thickness of the pre-1996 version. November 25, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Unsure, there would be a fault code associated with the warning lamp. My battery was just replaced so im just so lost.
I have a 1996 328ic that needs a starter. I diagnosed that the starter was bad when my car wouldn't start and crank. When I press a start button there it does not even crank. A 3rd arm would have also been beneficial. However, I still have some problem after put everything back. Verify that your old starter looks the same as the new starter and has the same number of electrical connections on the back.
April 24, 2010 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Thanks for the follow up. Then take the two plastic nuts from the wire harness on the firewall that are right above the top nut of the starter. They usually come right out with no problem. Really not that hard - no need to fully remove the intake. Sure a lot of that time was on the two bolts, but I damn sure didn't take the gearbox out. The smaller wires connect to the spade terminals of the starter. December 18, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Thanks for the feedback.
My bad January 16, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Got it. July 12, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: It is as likely the problem may be a battery cable. Now mind you the car has been sitting for 6 years I'm just now able to get it running. I started the car and it was in limp mode. It can be done with an m12 Torx ring spanner.
And I didn't replace the crankcase breather hose, since I don't think I broke it. In and out was under 2 hours. Some slight items like engines covers and some wiring are for both. Remove the oil breather tube from the intake manifold and the crankcase vent valve. A handy device I like to install on all my cars is a battery cutoff switch lower inset. You can seriously injure yourself and damage your electrical system if you accidentally ground the large red wire connected to the starter.
Verify again that the battery is disconnected, and then unbolt the large, thick red wire harness that connects to the starter. Ps all bolts are out. If they are not aluminum, can I reuse them? The tiny 3 inch square photos are not sufficient to actually see whats going on. I also use a bottle of techron before every 6k mile oil change and to my eyes, I'd say it's worth it. If you cant afford to, like me, then take your time. And why can't you buy a manual that explains things more in depth.
