1997 Volvo 850 Q&A

1997 Volvo 850 Question: how do i take off a solenoid?

my solenoid started sticking a few months back and i was able to give it a couple love taps to work but now it wont turn over at all. Can i take the solenoid off the starter and if so how do i do this? Do i need to take my starter out too? -
Answer 1
The solenoid is part of the starter, I'm not sure you can replace it separately. You will need to remove the entire starter either way. -

Thank you, I never new this. My Haynes Rebuild Self Repair Manual wasn't very specific on this part of the starter. -
Comment 2
I suggest you get an online repair manual from one of these companies, the info is far superior to the Haynes manuals. http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online http://alldatadiy.com/ -
