Having problems with your 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?

Removed Starter with no problem from 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 and for some reason can not get the new starter in. The bendix gear housing starts in but will no go in all the way. Can not push back of starter up due to exhaust manifold seem to be in way / or upper top front axle support in way/ have jacked jeep up and down trying to get clearance / have tried to start bendix snout from bottom at angle and also tried to start from top but cannot due to manifold

Answers :

The exhaust usually has to be moved to the side to get the starter in or out. I assume that you probably had a hard time getting the starter out to begin with. If you didn't unbolt the exhaust from the engine before, then you should now, the starter is a pain to get back in to start with. The starter also isn't perfectly level on the side that bolts on which makes sure that it is put on tight and sealed but it also makes it harder to start the bolts back onto the engine. Basically you should have someone else hold the exhaust away from the starter and up or tie it up to get the clearance that you need as you do need to have the starter sit as it is supposed to when you try bolting it back on.

Let me know how this works out for you
