Did this video help you?

mark battersby: I got my starter out . it was very hard I put 4 extensions together and got a straight shot at it

Victor Argeniss: wouldn't the starter be the same as a 95 740il... without the wires hanging from it tho, because the 95 those wires come from the wiring harness

ZorlacSkater: Are you filming with a microscope??! We can't see what you are doing and where you do it, please don't use so much zoom next time.

The Foxy Rider: Hey I need your help, Hoping you might reply, So my 2001 bmw x5 4.4 wont start or crank. I was told it was the starter but after buying a new one, going through the replacement process, I tried to start my car and still nothing. No crank. The lights, radio, and AC all come on but no crank or start even after replacing the starter.

Mark Battersby: This video is pointless . Who has there engine out of the car when replacing starter. I would like to see you do it with the engine installed and you will discover its probably impossible. I don't know what kind of special tool you need . but for the bolt you can see theres no room to get a tool in there that can turn . try it bet you cant do it

Jose Lopez: I have 06 750li with the n62 motor. where does the wire that plugs in to the starter solenoid plug to?

Andy A: Hey man my 96 740il clicks but still starts if I jump it or sometimes just turning the key a couple times but it makes a knocking noise any idea what it could be?

Curtis Dudley: Is this at all possible to don on 02 745li without taking everything under the vehicle apart?

Lision Murray: i have a bmw 740il 2001 my car starts and then shuts right back off, what could be the Problems

capsizefishing: thanks for the video !
i changed the valve cover gaskets, spark plugs and pcv diafram in the back of the manufold after starting the 99 540i up it instantly stalled and wont start up again all i hear is a click and it wont start anymore

bimmermerchant: Hey Clay, Its our pleasure.

Harley84fly: Thanx for the video helped me a lot knowing where the bolts were. A little tip for others turn youre wheels to point left makes for a little more room with the e39.

HolyShitAccess: I know I'm 1 moth late but Very nice Job. I was considering this work myself. Literally was trying to figure out what was wrong with my BMW and came to the conclusion it was the starter. But, what I didn't know is that the a Fuse had blown but looked perfectly fine from the outside. Ended up going to a mechanic with the car on a trailer just to have him yell at me it was the fuse. (More of a friend)

HolyShitAccess: Thanks for getting back to me so fast. Now I know what to do if anything happens. (Car currently will not start, No crank. 740IL 01)

bimmermerchant: Good Job, changing a starter is one of my least DIY projects. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Danny Rodas: no man...i just drove my car onto ramps so i could get under it....it's a pain in the butt but it took me around 2 hours to do it....not bad considering it was the first time i attempted this.

HolyShitAccess: Did you have to take the engine out? Do you have to?

Danny Rodas: it actually went better than i expected....that top bolt is a real pain in the butt to get out but i did...the only problem i ran into is that the site where i ordered the new starter sent me the wrong one so...my e38 is just sitting there waiting for the correct starter to come.

bimmermerchant: One of the harder tasks is locating the bolts so you are half way done. Just make sure to disconnect the battery, you don't want sparks flying and make sure car is not hot. Straight forward task. Good luck and let us know how it went.

bimmermerchant: That is a tricky job because of the limited space you have to work with. You will need lots of patience

Grey Market: Mahdi army got hardened fighting the US early in the Iraq invasion until Al-Sadr was bought off by the Americans. They let him keep his fiefdom and gave him a few million in cash I am sure. He stopped fighting and cooperated to help form the new government. The CIA is using the knowledge of 2Pac at work, "Give 'em guns, step back and watch 'em kill each other." Two radical birds with one stone.
