    The starter fit as an exact replacement and works fine. If you are replacing the starter on a Saturn, the top bolt can be tricky. It is pretty much stick the socket with an extension up their until you find the bolt head. Then when putting it back in, feel around and hope you can find the hidden hole. Contrary to a manual, it can and needs to be done from below.

    The first starter I purchased and installed did not work. Had to take the starter back out and return it for another. I was not happy having to do the job twice. The associate at the counter seemed to care less about the problem and even told me I would have to wait for another starter to come in. Very poor customer service.

        Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

        This starter was competitively priced, in stock and easy to install. The packaging/ padding was substantial enough to ensure the starter got to me in good shape and to return the old core. The warrantee is tough to beat as is the service of the store personnel. The online purchase procedure is well thought out and is easy to navigate. All info is automatically forwarded to your local store so it is just a matter of paying, printing the order confirmation and picking up your item. Most of the time your parts are pulled and waiting for you by the time you arrive.

        Part fit perfectly on my car. It wasn't an easy job, but the starter had nothing to do with that. Car seems to be starting fine now.

              Comments about ToughOne Starter - Remanufactured:

              The wiring connections did not fit properly. I had to enlarge the hole slightly for the Battery Cable. Also, I trimmed about 1/16" off the side of the Cable. If that was not done the Cable would not have seated properly. The small purple wire would not have had sufficient clearance (for me) if these minor adjustments were not made. Otherwise, the Starter fit and worked perfectly.
