97 Eurovan 6 cylinder, needs a starter.
As usual, I’ve offered to help a friend save some bucks, in this case, by slithering under this box and skinning my knuckles to pull the starter. But weather here in California has been relentlessly stormy, so I haven’t been able to even LOOK for the starter, much less decide if it’s too difficult for me to do the job without a lift (or a garage!). And I’m finding no useful youtube vids on the job, and no manuals.
If it IS too difficult, the van’s owner needs to make an appointment at a shop to have it done. I prefer to use a very reliable local auto electric shop rebuild starters and alternators, rather than just pop in a rebuilt. I’m doubtful if the local mechanic would go that route.
I’ve removed starters, but never in a German car. This one is 1997 Eurovan, 6 cylinder engine, auto transmission, I think that makes it a 2.8L.
Anyone know if this is a simple job? Or is the starter stuck in a tough spot, or has other stuff to remove to get at it, or is otherwise hard to remove and replace?
