Here is a diagram of a typical Toyota starter. I should bolt into the bellhousing on the side of the motor. Follow the battery cable to find it.

Can not find my starter for a 1995 z-28 camaro v-8 need a picture of location

Crawl under car with front tires on ramps. Look where the transmission and engine meet. Look on either side of the union between the two and the starter motor has to be there. Make sure you disconnect the battery before attempting the removal of the starter motor.

How do i replace my own starter on my 1987 licoln town car?

1. Raise the car and support it.
2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
3. Crawl under the car and locate the starter. It is easiest to do this by following the positive power cable from the battery down to the starter.
4. Remove positive cable from starter.
5. Remove wires from solenoid.
6. Remove bolts holding starter to the transmission bell housing.
7. Remove the starter.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

1994 pontiac grand am cant find horn location

Crawl up under the vehicle and look up in the space between the inner fender wells and the headlights just behind the bumper and or directly under the battery but you have to crawl under the car. Use a flashlight.

Replace starter

Disconnect the battery, then crawl under the truck and locate the starter, remove the plug going to the solenoid (small brown lead w plastic clip) . then the power wire that goes from the battery to the main starter terminal (12 mm nut) locate the 2 starter bolts 14 mm and unbolt the starter and remove. install in reverse order. ON the 4 wheel drives you may need to remove the skid plates over the bottom of the engine to access the starter.

Starter location for a 1995 jeep cherokee 4.0 litre engine 6 cylinder

Look under the passenger side, behind the tire. It's up under there, so you will have to crawl under to find it. You'll see a silver/black can shaped thing.
