    Please Need Help Replacing a Starter,,,,,,,

    I have a 2003 fx140 that I need some guidance on how to replace the starter. I was told that I had to remove the engine to get to it. Then I was told by another shop that all I needed to do was to remove the exhaust. The first shop is charging me 800.00 with parts the second shop want 600 with parts. Iím pretty handy with tools I custom fabricate cars on the side but never worked on a jet ski. Iím going to try to do it myself I just donít know where to start. Thanks

    You'll need the service manual and if you are handy, give it a shot. Might as well try first. Only issue might be if the starter is corroded where the shaft bushing sits in the housing. Make sure battery is unplugged.

    I’m going to give it a shot this weekend see what happens. I’m going to remove the exhaust I think I can get it from there.

    Reason I said the manual is to know the torque specs on the exhaust manifold bolts and am sure you have a replacement exhaust gasket. Never hurts to try.
