Just had a question about replacing the starter on an old 87 accord.
My plan is to swap it out with one from a scrap yard and was just wondering how I would verify I have the right model. I have the 86 Service Manual pdf and it mentions a few different 1.0kw and 1.4kw versions.
I did call a few auto parts dealers and it was about $180+ to get a replacement so I figure if I can get one from a wrecker and get lucky I'll do that but was wondering if an accord or a prelude of the same year range say 86-89 would match or how I would know for sure.
When I call the parts dealers they also ask if it is an automatic/standard and fuel injected/carb.
My guess would be that just allows them to know what kind of starter was on that car when it was manufactured. Right/wrong?
For the record this model is 4dr-sedan, carb, automatic and the PN says Bosh 19-5772-0.
Yes by giving all that information they will know which starter your car takes, I believe there was 2 or 3 choises .. at and 5sp took a different one
the bosch starter Is Not an original starter, but if you tell the part store, year, model, At or 5sp , they should know which one to give you ,,,bosch starters are ok,, why not install another one just like it..
Is $ 180 for part and labor ?? if so it is not a bad price .. ask how long the new starter is warrantied for
Take a look in the DIY section before asking for help.
