How to repair or replace starter?

Repair of the starter consists in replacement of its broken elements, and should be performed by specialists at a service station, because locating the defect yourself is rather difficult. After problem identification, it may be necessary to replace the carbon brushes or repair the brush holders, to replace the bushes, bearings or the starting relay .

In case if the defect is more serious, it is recommended to replace the car starter. It can be performed on your own but you should take into account that the starter is located in a hard-to-reach place. In order to replace the component yourself, you should do the following:

  1. Place the car on the car ramp or the inspection pit, secure the car in place.
  2. Stop the battery voltage supply.
  3. Remove the protective cover located in the lower part of the engine compartment.
  4. Now you have access to the starter. Disconnect all the wires going to it and to the starting relay.
  5. Unscrew the fastening bolts and demount the broken down component.
  6. Install a new starter and then reassemble everything in the reversed order.

Take into account that the replacement procedure can vary for the cars of different models. For example, on some cars the starter is easier to be demounted through the engine compartment. That is why you should study car technical documentation before starting replacement.
