How to Replace a Buick Starter


Replacing your starter in your Buick can be a time-consuming task as each model is different. One rule of thumb for easily locating the starter is to identify the red positive cable on your battery and trace the other end of the cable. This will lead to the starter, which is hooked directly to your battery. With a few simple tools you can disconnect the old starter and install the new one. You will notice a significant difference when you go to start the vehicle after replacing your starter.

Step 1

Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Disconnect the negative and positive terminal on the battery with a 7/16-inch wrench before replacing the starter.

Step 2

Locate the starter under the car. The starter will be located between the transmission and the engine.
