I have a '92 trooper and the starter has quit. All it does now is click. I took the bolts out and unhooked the power cable to it. It is now completley detached from the vehicle. I can't work the stupid thing out though!!!!!!!!!! From what I can tell, it looks like I'm gonna have to take the exhaust pipe off to get it out. Advice?????????????

I read something on this forum about this...yep, you gotta take the exhaust pipe off, but make sure you use plenty of WD-40 or the like on the bolts and let it soak for a while before you take them off. This will aid in removal of the bolts, otherwise you risk breaking them off...my two cents...no bad luck for you my friend!

I answered your PM for you.

We have the Rodeos so I don't know what is different under there, but it will come out-it is just finding THAT position to drop it out.

I will definately let you know tonight-we are both at work today and there is no way that I can get a hold of him-he is in meetings all day.

Sorry I can't help you sooner.

Hey I used to live in Southern Ill. Where are you locacted?

I can say you may unbolt the motor mounts and the tranny mount and lift the engine a bit to snake it out of there. I've done this a time or two, but it may not help on the Trooper. I'm a Rodeo guy too.

Take the motor mount loose on the starter side, jack the engine up ( it will only go so high), the head of the starter comes out first, the stud on the starter has to face the oil pan, shoud wiggle out.

I just did mine on my 92 Trooper w/ out removing anything additional. I will come out, it took a while, and you need extensions to get to the bolts. I did have to pull out a small rubber tube going into my front axel (4x4) and move some wiring out of the way then I had to flip it end to end then it came out. Putting the new one back in was just as challenging, but it will go. I was a pain for me, because it croaked in a parking lot, and I just slid under it to change it, so my movement was very limited.
