    Upon removal of starter, note if any shims are used. If shims are used, they should be reinstalled in their original location during installation. If starter is noisy during cranking, remove one .015 inch double shim or add one .015 inch single shim to the outer bolt. If starter makes a high pitched whine after firing, add .015 inch double shims until noise ceases.

    1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
    2. Raise and support vehicle, then remove nut from brace at A/C compressor.
