Removing the starter on your Mazda B2600 pickup is necessary for replacement or troubleshooting purposes. The starter can be taken to an automotive parts store for bench-testing. This test will determine if the starter is functioning correctly. The starter itself is held on by two bolts and two wiring harnesses. The process for removing the starter is straightforward as it is easily accessible from under the truck.
Park the truck on a solid, flat surface. Set the parking brake.
Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Disconnect the positive and negative cables from the battery with a socket wrench.
Raise the truck by placing a jack under the front cross-member of the truck.
