How to remove a starter
 General precautions on removing a starter
Starters are heavy and can easily cause injury if they were to fall on you. Make sure that the starter is supported before removing the bolts and do not lie directly beneath it.

 Tools needed:
3/8" drive sockets: 8mm or 5/16", 13mm, 14mm, 15mm; 1/4" drive socket: 11mm deep
1/4" and 3/8" drive ratchet. If bolts are tight, use breaker bar.
Jack and jackstands
Lug wrench or 3/4" socket with 1/2" drive breaker bar
- Remove the negative battery cable (use 8mm socket or wrench and jack up the truck/SUV).
- Remove wheel and disconnect battery cable and "S" terminal with 13mm and 8mm sockets. The "S" terminal nut is easy to remove using a fine tooth ratchet.
- Remove and support the starter. For better access, remove the torque converter cover (4 bolts) and the transmission cooler line which is bolted to the engine oil pan. Use an 11mm socket.
- Remove the starter and install the rebuilt/new starter. Replace everything you removed to get to the starter.
