  1. Make sure you have the anti-theft code for the radio, then write down the frequencies for the radio's preset buttons.
  2. Disconnect the battery negative terminal first, then the positive terminal.

NOTE: The PCM memory setting is needed after reconnecting the battery.

  1. Raise the coolant reservoir, then remove the battery and battery base.
  2. Remove the alternator belt and alternator.
  3. Remove the left exhaust manifold cover.
  4. Remove the left damper fork.
  5. Disconnect the left suspension lower arm ball joint.
  6. Remove the left driveshaft.

  1. Remove the transmission stop collar, then remove the exhaust pipe A.
  2. Remove the front mount mounting bolts.
  3. Attach the chain hoist to the engine.

  1. Remove the left engine mount bracket.

  1. Disconnect the starter cable and BLK/WHT wire, then remove the starter.

  1. Install in the reverse order of removal.

NOTE: When installing the starter cable, make sure that the crimped side of the ring terminal is facing out.

  1. Enter the anti-theft code for the radio, then enter the customer's radio station presets.
