Direct replacement for my 04 Silverado. I like to look and finish. Has worked great for the past 10 days. Has a different sound than the one it replaced but all is working fine. There are 2 bolts securing it to the transmission and one to remove the dust cover and two nuts for the cables. A very simple removal and replacement. The most difficult part is negotiating the space to remove the starter and the reversal. My truck was making a clicking sound and I thought it was the flex plate and I was preparing to replace it when a friend told me try the starter because of problems with the bendix. I am glad I followed his directions.

Extremely Noisy - no where near OE Specs

Very noisy performance when starting engine. Concern for bearing and motor life as starter seems to be laboring

    Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

    It's nice to see that a starter doesn't need to weigh 100 lbs. anymore! I didn't need to be a contorsionist to get it out or re-install it.
