How to Remove a Starter on a 1986 Subaru Wagon GL

If you own a 1986 Subaru GL Wagon, the car has most likely been started thousands of times. If you've noticed starting problems with the car recently, the problem most likely begins with the starter. When this goes out, the engine isn't able to turn over, and therefore, the car won't run. Fortunately, removing the starter is fairly straightforward. After it's off the car, you can get the starter tested or simply replace it.

Tools Used: Open-end wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet, extension and socket set

Remove a Starter

Open the hood. Remove the connections on the battery using an open-end wrench, starting first with the negative terminal and then moving on to the positive terminal.

Remove the connections on the starter using both an open-end wrench and the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket.

Take the 3/8-inch ratchet, extension and socket and disconnect the two bolts holding the starter to the transmission. Lift up the starter motor off of the engine and remove it from the vehicle.
