This video will show you step-by-step the procedure for replacing the starter motor for a Acura 3.2L V6 TL ('99 - '06), CL ('07 - '03) and Honda Accord ('98 - '07). The procedure is relatively straight forward. The most difficult task is removal of the bottom two bolts that holds the battery base plate. You can either get to it through the wheel well or from the engine compartment. I did it from the engine compartment.

      Ok...I’m doing replace this week! 😬 this is a great video! Thank you 😊. The new starter that I have looks like one of the washers are cracked and the nut is loose on the same area you said you were going to use the “factory bolt” with the built in washer. Should I take the starter back to the store?

      It wouldn't hurt to have the store check out the condition of the replacement starter.

      The power tools are battery driven electric 3/8 and 1/2" impact drivers make by Milwaukee Tools. The 3/8" is part of the M12 series; the 1/2" part of the M18 series. The long handle reversible ratchet wrench is made by Mountain Tools. The only other unique tool is the needle nose pliers. If you want the Amazon links to the tools, let me know.

      If a V6 Engine in the CL, procedure should be nearly identical. Also, if you can see the starter after the battery has been removed, your almost half way there.
