    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.

    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.

          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.

                            I bought this starter to replace a defective starter on my son's 2000 Saturn SL2 with nearly 150k miles. Everything you read about the top bolt of the starter being hard to reach on these cars is true. I taped the bolt to the socket so I didn't lose the bolt on top of the starter during installation and then just felt around until I found the mounting hole. That's not a starter problem though. Other than that, installation is easy and the starter bolts in place fine. Reconnect the wires and fire it up. I only put it in a week ago but it works fine everytime. The lifetime warranty convinced me to buy this over another starter they had so I expect (hope) that it holds up the few more years we plan to keep this car.
