Q: how do i get to and replace starter

asked by on

I have tested the alternator and the battery. It will not start. So that leaves the starter right? I do not know how to get to it unless I have to drop the transmission.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

In general, the process for replacing a starter follows this method:

  • Inspect the starter and ignition switch.
  • Remove and replace starter if it has failed.
  • Test for power going to starter.
  • Inspect the starter relay, grounds, supply cables and battery.

For specific tips on how to replace the starter on your 2002 GMC Yukon, I’d search YouTube.com for some videos you can watch or purchase a service manual for your vehicle.
