Starter dismantle

The dismantled starter (5)

1 – the electromagnetic switch;
2 – the plug of 30 wires (from the accumulator);

3 – the plug of 50 wires (from the ignition lock);
4 – приводная a starter gear wheel.

Here the starter is disassembled

1 – an arm of graphite brushes;
2 – an anchor;
3 – шестереночная transfer;
4 – the bearing case;

5 – the case;
6 – a case cover;
7 – a bearing cover;
8 – a safety washer, an adjusting washer and a lining.

In figures "1", 2 and 4 bolts which should be unscrewed at dismantle of a starter (3) (the four-cylinder engine) are shown.


  1. Disconnect on the accumulator a weight wire, short circuit differently is possible.
  2. Dismantle the bottom facing of the engine (the head of the Detail of a body).
  3. Raise the right forward part of the car and fix.
  4. The four-cylinder engine: disconnect all wires on the electromagnetic switch.
  5. There where is, dismantle an arm on a starter ahead in the direction of travel.
  6. Unscrew fixing bolts and nuts on a fixing flange of a starter (in the direction of travel behind).
  7. Take out a starter.
  8. The six-cylinder engine: dismantle a ventilating hose of the generator.
  9. Unscrew an arm маслопровода (an automatic transmission) on картере and the transmission case.
  10. Dismantle wires on the electromagnetic switch of a starter.
  11. Uncover.
  12. Dismantle wire D + on the generator.
  13. Hang out wires to a starter and the generator from arms on a body, unscrew arms.
  14. Unscrew fixing bolts and nuts on a fixing flange of a starter (in the direction of travel behind).
  15. Take out a starter from a transmission bell, having overturned it from top to bottom.
  16. Now wring out a starter upwards and extend it aside over a transmission.
  17. In this work it is a question of millimetres.

Replacement of graphite brushes

If the starter strikes, that, probably, graphite brushes are erased only. These graphite brushes are on sale only in gathering with a fixing plate. As after opening of the case of a starter hermetic sealing it is necessary to get hermetic D3 in a warehouse of spare parts should be broken. At the four-cylinder engine the powerful soldering iron and solder also are necessary.


  1. Dismantle a starter.
  2. Unscrew two screws with шлицевыми heads on a small cover of the bearing on a starter underside, uncover.
  3. Remove a safety washer and an adjusting washer from the end of a shaft located under it.
  4. Unscrew both screws with шлицевыми heads (or nuts with распорными fingers) on a back cover of the case and uncover.
  5. Measure length of graphite brushes – the minimum length of 8 mm.
  6. For replacement of graphite brushes unscrew a fixing plate from its knot of connection on the electromagnetic switch.
  7. Again mount a starter, thus condense with hermetic a case cover, fixing screws and a bearing cover.

Dismantle of the electromagnetic switch


  1. Dismantle a starter.
  2. Unscrew a starter wire.
  3. Unscrew three screws with шлицевыми heads on a fixing flange of the electromagnetic switch.
  4. Pull the electromagnetic switch a little back and take out an eye from the starting lever of a starter.
