2002 SL1
Default What size starter on a 2002 SL1 w/ manual transmission?

Does anyone know what size (length) the starter is that comes on the 2002 SL1 w/ manual transmission when the vehicle left the factory?

It appears that there are 3 different sizes as shown here:
http://econtent.autozone.com:24999/z.../00/45/825.pdf

242mm, 215mm and 206mm.

If I have to purchase a new starter I'd like to get the same length as the OEM that came on my car when it left the Saturn factory so that I don't have to mess with getting longer wires.

Thank you!

Ah, so that's why you hijacked those other threads.... BTW, it's better to keep your questions to your own thread; posing new questions to old threads can make it confusing to determine who's answering who, and who's asking what.

Anyway, from the pics in your other thread, you have a Valeo starter, which is the shortest of them all, so whatever other starter you get, your fusible link to the alternator will be plenty long enough. And now that you mention it, when I replaced my starter a few weeks ago, I got the one called "Delco short" in your PDF; the original was the Valeo. Both the battery wire and the fusible link had plenty of slack. From the way that PDF is written, the only time there's a concern is if you're replacing a "Delco Long" starter with either of the smaller ones.
