take off the passenger side front tire and youll have to use a couple of socket extensions to get it, make sure to jack and block car correctly. when you remove the tire you should be able to see the top bolt with a droplight through the wheelwell
access is through the wheelwell I believe.

If you can't get to the top bolt on the starter ( If this is a 1994 V8 not a 1994 V6 ) The starter solenoid can be removed from the starter using a small torx wrench. This will allow tight but enough access using a 10mm wrench or socket. Re-installatiion is does without removing the solenoid. Tight, but access is a little easier when the bolts to the starter are hand tightened as much as possible before completing .

How to change starter on 1994 corolla

The sizes given are the wrench sizes needed to perform the step.
1. Remove the negative battery cable from the battery.
2. Remove the hose that connects the air cleaner to the throttle body.
3. Remove the top of the air cleaner box (4 clips on the corners).
4. Take out the air filter. Disconnect the sensor on the side of the air cleaner.
5. Remove the three bolts (2 - 12mm, 1 - 10mm) that hold the bottom of the air cleaner box to the inner fender and remove the box.
6. Disconnect the two rubber hoses on the top of the air canister (one large, one small).
7. Loosen the clamp bolt (10mm) (be careful as there is a non-captive nut that will drop if you remove the bolt completely) and slide the air canister out.
8. Remove the two bolts that hold the fuel filter on to its bracket (10mm). It is the same bracket as the air canister's.
9. Remove the air canister/fuel filter bracket by removing the four bolts that hold it in place (10mm).
10. Remove the wire harness/hose bracket directly in front of the top starter bolt (12mm) - this will facilitate your ability to get a socket wrench on the starter bolt. On my car it was RIGHT in the way!
11. Loosen the top starter bolt (14mm).
12. Loosen the bottom starter bolt (14mm) and remove it completely.
13. Hold the starter up and remove the top bolt completely. Flip the starter over and place it on the drive axle below with the wiring facing up.
14. Disconnect the solenoid plug and the starter cable (12mm).
15. Remove the starter by snaking it through the driver's side of the motor compartment. There's enough room if you're patient - be careful not to snag anything and damage it.
16. Snake the new starter down through the driver's side reverse of the way the old one came out. Lie it on the drive axle and connect the solenoid connector and the cable.
17. Flip it over and up into place. Hold it in place and start the top bolt. Tighten it by hand enough that the starter stays in place by itself.
18. Start the bottom bolt; tighten it up all the way.
19. Tighten the top bolt the rest of the way.
20. Connect the battery cable and try the starter - before you put everything back!
21. Replace canister/fuel filter bracket and bolt the fuel filter in place.
22. Slide the air canister in and tighten the clamp bolt. Connect the two rubber hoses on top of it.
23. Install the bottom of the air cleaner box; plug in the sensor.
24. Put in the air filter and then replace the top of the air cleaner.
25. Connect the big hose from the air cleaner to the throttle body.
NOTE: You may have to reset the "check engine" light when you're finished (I think starting the car when we check it in Step 20 can freak out the computer since there are still things disconnected). To do this, find the fuse block on the driver's side of the engine compartment; remove the 15A EFI fuse for 30 seconds. Put the fuse back in - the light should now be reset.
That's it! Shouldn't need another one for another 150,000 miles!

A helpful rating and an testimonial would be greatly appreciated if you are satisfied with my solution ...

How do i replace a starter in a 1994 Jeep cherokee country

For removal & installation...
  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. On 1989-91 models equipped with a 2.5L engine, it is necessary to remove the exhaust clamp and bracket, and the transmission brace rod before removing the starter.
  1. Remove all wires from the starter and tag them for installation.

It may be easier to remove the solenoid wires after lowering the starter. Support the starter before removing the wires. DO NOT LET THE STARTER HANG BY THE WIRES.
  1. On 4.0L, 5.2L and 5.9L engines, it may be necessary to remove the oil cooler line bracket and the exhaust brace.
  2. Remove all but one attaching bolt, support the starter (it's heavier than it looks) and remove the last bolt.
  1. Lower the starter from the engine.
  2. If installing the original starter, inspect the pinion gear for damage or excessive wear.
  3. Inspect the flywheel gear teeth for damage through the starter mounting hole.

To install:
  1. Install the starter in the engine and hand-tighten the retaining bolts.
  2. Engage any electrical connections that were removed from the starter.
  3. Tighten the retaining bolts and engage any cooler lines, braces and brackets that were removed. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable and check for proper starter operation.
Also, here you can review the Jeep Cherokee Service Manual

Hope helped with this (remember rates this help) Good luck.

I'm replacing the starter in my 97 Lincoln Continental. I have the two bolts out and it will not budge. What do i have to do to get it off? Thanks!!!

Look for the third bolt on the top of the starter. It may have to be accessed past the engine mount with a long extension.

94 toyota carolla starter clicks eventualy starts

You have two options: replace the starter (easiest, but most expensive), or replace the contacts (cheaper, but more work involved).
In any case, you have to remove the starter. Disconnect the battery BEFORE you start. Locate the starter and remove the wires going to it. The starter is held onto the transmission with 2 large bolts. Remove both, and slide the starter out.

If you want to change the contacts, observe the starter, locate a metal plate held on with 3 bolts. Remove the bolts and the plate. You will now see a plunger, and 2 copper colored contacts. Those are what needs to be replaced. Changing the contacts is easy, just do one at a time, and ensure that all insulators are installed properly on reassembly.

I put in new starter for 94 lincoln tc but its not working.

If starter was mounted properly it may be defective or may need to be shimmed. It can also mean that you have a bad flywheel but if this wasn't happening with old starter then you can rule that out. If old starter had shimms(small flat plates between starter and mounting surface,starter bolts go through them). If this is an after market starter then it can most definitely be defective. The fly wheel and the starter gear is meshing properly that's where the screech comes from gear grinding not engaging properly. Good luck Thanks for using FIX YA
